Description

1866 With Motto Twenty, MS60
Scarce First-Year Issue
Especially Challenging in Uncirculated

1866 $20 MS60 PCGS. The 1866 Philadelphia double eagle marks the introduction of the Type Two design, with the motto IN GOD WE TRUST added to the reverse. With a fairly plentiful mintage (close to 700,000 pieces), it is not too difficult to locate in VF or XF. AU examples are scarce, and Mint State pieces are rare. Yellow and orange-gold surfaces of this MS60 coin display the most powerful luster in the areas around, and in the interstices of, the design elements. Sharply struck throughout. Several small marks are scattered about, but these are fewer in frequency and intensity than typically occurring on this issue. Housed in a green-label holder. Population: 9 in 60, 18 finer (3/13).
Ex: Central States Signature (Heritage, 5/2007), lot 4001.(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 269X, PCGS# 8949)

Another major house refused the work stating it was too unique for the artist. Heritage saw that as an advantage!
