Description:

1860-O Double Eagle, XF Details
Sixth Rarest O-Mint Twenty
1860-O $20 --Improperly Cleaned--NCS. XF Details. Variety-1, the only known variety. The 1860-O Liberty Head double eagle is a better date, ranking as the sixth rarest O-mint issue in the series. The original reported mintage was a scant 6,600 pieces and experts estimate a surviving population of just 85-95 examples in all grades. Doug Winter believes less than three dozen specimens are extant at the XF level and a combined total of 12 specimens have been certified by NGC and PCGS in the XF Details grade (3/10).
The present coin is well, but not fully struck. The surfaces are unnaturally bright from cleaning, with the obverse brighter than the reverse. Numerous small abrasions on each side give the surfaces a slightly granular appearance.(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 269E, PCGS# 8930)
