Description

1861 Twenty, Choice AU
Good Selection for a Type One

1861 $20 AU55 NGC. Fewer than expected circulation abrasions for this grade and ample mint luster make this Choice AU double eagle attractive and desirable. Bright yellow-gold color is consistent throughout. The 1861 twenty was heavily minted as the first Civil War era date -- a workhorse issue with nearly three million pieces produced. Many circulated widely and it is seldom found so unabraded with original appeal unless in Mint or near-Mint condition.
Ex: 1987 Mid-Winter ANA Auction (Heritage, 2-3/1987), lot 1093, flip included.
From The Ole Miner's Collection.(Registry values: N991) (NGC ID# 269G, PCGS# 8932)
