Description:
Attractive, Conditionally Scarce 1858-O Double Eagle, AU53
1858-O $20 AU53 NGC. After the San Francisco Mint opened in 1854, only small amounts of gold arrived in New Orleans for further coinage. Mintage figures quickly dwindled from that date until the end of operations at the start of the Civil War. From 1854 to 1861, New Orleans only coined an average of 14,000 double eagles per year, with the mintage of 35,250 coins in 1858 representing the largest annual production during the aforementioned period.
This double eagle is an attractive green-gold representative with a few minor bagmarks and hairlines, but generally pleasing surfaces. A few minute rim bruises are evident on the obverse. Traces of luster and hints of pale orange toning add to its overall eye appeal. Census: 36 in 53, 52 finer (11/08).
