Description:
Gilt 1859 Double Eagle, Judd-257, PR63
1859 P$20 Twenty Dollar, Judd-257, Pollock-305, High R.6, PR63 Gilt NGC. A seated figure of Liberty faces left on the obverse supporting a fasces with her right hand and a shield with her left. An eagle is standing behind the shield. The denomination 20 DOLLARS, the date, 1859, and the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA are within a very heavy oak and laurel wreath. Both designs were created by Anthony Paquet. Struck in copper and gilt with a reeded edge. About 20 or so gilt pieces are believed to exist. This example ably demonstrates the potential of Paquet's design were it to have been struck in gold. The gilt is intact and light hairlines explain the PR63 grade. An interesting pattern by one of the Mint's more overlooked engravers.
From The Wyoming Collection. (PCGS# 12024)
