Description

Select 1879 Liberty Twenty
Rare in Mint State Grades

1879 $20 MS63 NGC. Production of double eagles declined at the Philadelphia Mint in 1879, with a reported mintage of 207,600 pieces. Many circulated survivors are available in today's market, but Mint State coins are rare. The present coin is a pleasing Select example with sharply detailed design elements. All star centrils are complete, and fine detail shows in Liberty's hair and the eagle's claws. The surfaces are lightly abraded, except for a few minor contact marks on the bust. The surfaces display vibrant satiny mint luster and rich intermingled green and rose-gold color. Census: 6 in 63, 5 finer (3/13).
From C.R.B.'s $20 Liberty Set.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 26B6, PCGS# 8988)
