Description

Conditionally Rare 1856 Twenty Dollar, MS62 NGC

1856 $20 MS62 NGC. An elusive date in all grades, this issue is generally not found above the XF-AU level and Mint State pieces are virtually unheard of. This is the first Uncirculated piece we have offered in recent memory. Combining the total number of Mint State coins certified by both of the major services (12/04) yields a total of 27 coins including possible resubmissions. This is one of the finest examples certified and well within the Condition Census for the date. For a Type One Twenty, this is an exceptional coin. The surfaces are fully lustrous and show a light tinge of mint-green patina. The devices are fully struck in all areas with intricate detailing on the hair curls and peripheral stars. A few abrasions are scattered about on the obverse, but the reverse is virtually free from most post-striking impairments. Population: 2 in 62, 0 finer (12/04).
Ex: Stack's (3/85), lot 841.
