Description:
Choice AU 1891 Twenty--A Very Rare, Low Mintage Issue
1891 $20 AU55 PCGS. The 1891 is a curiously overlooked issue in the Type Three series of double eagles. Its difficulty was best (and succinctly) summed up in the Fuljenz/Winter book on this series: "The 1891 is the rarest Type Three Double Eagle struck after the 1880s." Only 1,442 business strikes were produced and it is reliably estimated that a mere 12-16 pieces are extant today in AU condition with 1-2 coins believed known in mint condition. As with all known survivors, this piece has bright, semi-prooflike fields. Striking definition is strong throughout and there are very few abrasions on either side, the most notable being a diagonal scratch between stars 11 and 12. (NGC ID# 26C2, PCGS# 9016)

Needless to say I was overwhelmed by the results of the auction and I truly believe it was Jill’s efforts in promoting and displaying the piece that brought in the extra value.
