Description

1858-O Liberty Head Double Eagle, AU50
Scarce Branch Mint Issue

1858-O $20 AU50 NGC. Records indicate 35,250 double eagles were struck at the New Orleans Mint in 1858, with one variety known for the date. In his series reference, Doug Winter estimates a surviving population of 150-175 examples in all grades, with perhaps 50 specimens extant in AU. Population data from the grading services indicate a slightly larger population, but the figures may be distorted by resubmissions. The present coin shows fine detail present on the design elements, with slight wear evident on the high points. The surfaces are a pleasing greenish-gold color with radiant mint luster. A few minor, grade-consistent nicks are noted on the bust and in the obverse field. Census: 5 in 50, 88 finer (6/10).(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 2698, PCGS# 8924)
