Description:
1861-O Double Eagle, VF30
Historic New Orleans Issue
1861-O $20 VF30 PCGS. This 1861-O double eagle could have been struck under authority of the United States, the state of Louisiana, or the Confederacy, as all three entities had control of the New Orleans Mint during portions of 1861. Garrett and Guth estimate that fewer than 200 examples of the 1861-O survive today in all grades. This piece demonstrates even wear over the devices and from side to side, with subdued orange color. The numerous abrasions are consistent with the VF30 grade. Mentionable contact includes a long, thin scrape from the nose into the upper left obverse field, and a couple of short ticks at the termination of that mark. Two mentionable marks appear on the reverse, one in the oval of stars, the other actually two marks under the right (facing) wing. A nice, midgrade example of this historic and interesting issue.(Registry values: N1793) (NGC ID# 269J, PCGS# 8934)

I received the catalog and was very impressed with its color illustrations, descriptions and attractive layout. (It has better production values than the New York houses.)
