Description

Overlooked 1857-O Twenty, AU58
Almost Never Seen Finer

1857-O $20 AU58 NGC. The 1857-O twenty is most often seen in VF and XF grades. AU50 coins are scarce and higher level AUs are rare. Mint State pieces are extremely rare; indeed, NGC and PCGS have certified only four Uncirculated examples, none above MS63.
Bright yellow-gold color envelops this near-Mint State specimen that displays a good amount of luster, and the design elements exhibit an above-average strike, including the date, obverse stars, and Liberty's hair, elements that are often weak. Small circulation marks are noted, but these are shallower that usually encountered on surviving examples. Census: 24 in 58, 3 finer (2/10).(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 2694, PCGS# 8921)
