Description

S.S. Brother Jonathan 1865-S Twenty
Lightly Patinated Near-Gem

1865-S $20 MS64 NGC. Ex: S.S. Brother Jonathan, inventory number unknown. The Brother Jonathan sale took place in May 1999 and was responsible for the dispersal of most of the high-grade 1865-S double eagles on the market. This example has been transferred from a PCGS holder to an NGC, but even without the Brother Jonathan pedigree on the holder, the balance of probabilities would have pointed to a shipwreck origin for this near-Gem. Boldly lustrous, lightly patinated surfaces shift from yellow to orange depending on the angle to the light. Minor striking softness affects the hair below Liberty's coronet, but the overall eye appeal is solid.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 269V, PCGS# 8944)
