Description:
Lovely 1857-O Double Eagle, AU55
1857-O $20 AU55 NGC. With San Francisco Mint operations underway in 1854, the New Orleans Mint saw a drastic decline in gold coin production. That was especially true in 1854 and 1856. The other years of the 1850s also saw low production, such as the 30,000 double eagles coined in Louisiana in 1857.
Only a few high grade survivors remain from that mintage, with the typical example grading XF40 or XF45. This Choice AU specimen has bright green-gold luster with faintly reflective fields. The surfaces have myriad marks but none are singular. A lovely example for the advanced collector. Census: 24 in 55, 27 finer (11/10).(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 2694, PCGS# 8921)
