Description

1891 AU 50 Double Eagle, An Unheralded Rarity

1891 AU 50 PCGS. An unheralded, but unquestionably rare Philadelphia twenty that was struck in an era when the bulk of the double eagle production went to the San Francisco facility. Just 1,390 business strikes were produced. This moderately abraded, wholly original example keeps most of its inherent prooflikeness and can be distinguished from other 1891s by a small spot on the horizontal lines of the eagle's shield. Population: 7 in 50, 11 finer (11/98). (NGC ID# 254S, PCGS# 9016)
