Description

1857-O Twenty, AU53
Single Die Pair

1857-O $20 AU53 PCGS. Following the low mintages of New Orleans double eagles in 1854, 1855, and 1856, production reached 30,000 coins in 1857, the second highest mintage New Orleans twenty coined after 1853, exceeded only by the 35,250 pieces struck the next year. This example matches the criteria for the single variety known to Doug Winter, who states that seven Mint State pieces are known, with an estimate of 50 to 60 AU coins. This pleasing specimen has intermingled light yellow and honey-gold color with considerable remaining luster and only light, scattered marks rather than the heavy abrasions of most survivors. Population: 7 in 53, 19 finer (11/11).(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 2694, PCGS# 8921)
