Description

Important MS62 1859-S Twenty Dollar

1859-S $20 MS62 PCGS. The 1859-S had an original mintage of 636,445 pieces but, as one would expect from an early S-mint double eagle, most of the surviving examples are only usually found in VF or XF. Probably no more than three dozen Uncirculated coins are known with eight other MS62 PCGS-certified pieces and six graded by NGC, none are finer (6/05). This is a lovely coin that is certainly at the upper end of the stated grade. The original surfaces exude bright golden-rose and lilac patina with strong underlying mint luster. Sharply struck throughout with no reportable abrasions.(#8928)(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 269C, PCGS# 8928)
