Description

Rare, Well Struck 1858-O Double Eagle, AU55

1858-O $20 AU55 PCGS. The 1858-O double eagle is scarce in any condition, which is apparent from PCGS/NGC population data that show somewhat over 200 coins, a number of which are likely resubmissions. Very Fine and Extremely Fine pieces are the best that can be readily obtained. About Uncirculated examples are rare, and Mint State coins are extremely rare, with a mere three certified specimens, none finer than MS62.
The yellow-gold surfaces of this Choice AU example display semiprooflike fields that highlight the devices. Above average definition is apparent on the design features, including the date, hair curls, and left obverse stars, areas that are often weak. Minute contact marks are scattered about.(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 2698, PCGS# 8924)
