Description

Impressive 1866-S With Motto Twenty, MS61

1866-S $20 Motto MS61 NGC. Garrett and Guth, in analyzing the 1866-S With Motto double eagle, conclude that while the issue is not difficult to find in mid-range or even higher circulated grades, Mint State examples are elusive. Of those survivors, virtually all show extensive abrasions, and finding an example with strong eye appeal is highly challenging.
This pleasing MS61 piece offers a wonderful change from the norm. Its well struck devices are unworn, and while numerous light to moderate marks visit the fields, the portrait is surprisingly clean for the grade assigned. Green-gold surfaces offer wonderful luster. NGC has graded a mere three finer pieces (4/08).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 26B2, PCGS# 8950)
