Description

Still-Reflective AU53 1891 Twenty

1891 $20 AU53 NGC. Any discussion of the 1891 double eagle's place in U.S. numismatics must begin with its business strike mintage, just 1,390 pieces. (This coin's previous auction appearance with another firm, listed below, gives a figure of 1,442 coins, but this tally erroneously includes the 52 proofs of the year.) Modestly rubbed surfaces are pale yellow-gold with considerable remaining reflectivity. Scattered light to moderate digs, including a handful of rim cuts, affect the obverse more heavily, though the decently detailed reverse is attractive for the grade. Census: 2 in 53, 26 finer (2/12).
Ex: Bowers and Merena (9/2009), lot 1639.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 26C2, PCGS# 9016)
