Description:
Mostly Lustrous 1859 Liberty Twenty
1859 $20 AU55 NGC. With a limited original mintage of 43,677 pieces, one would think that the 1859 is widely recognized as a challenging date. Actually, the '59-P does not garner the respect as a condition rarity that it should, perhaps because it was unfortunate enough to have been struck at the Philadelphia Mint and not one of the more romanticized branch mints. Nevertheless, the present AU representative is far finer than the more frequently offered VF-XF survivor. Remnants of a prooflike finish still shimmer at most angles, this despite light wear and a somewhat scuffy appearance. There is plenty of definition over the devices, particularly the more important ones in the centers.(#8926) (Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 269A, PCGS# 8926)
