Gilt 1872 Amazonian Double Eagle, J-1251

1872 $20 Barber's Amazonian Head Double Eagle, Judd-1251, Pollock-1393, Low R.7, PR64 Gilt NGC. William Barber's "Amazonian Gold" design, similar to the gold dollar pattern except the denomination is expressed as TWENTY DOL. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. This is a lovely example with bright yellow-gold color and hints of green. The reverse of this example is unlike any of the smaller denominations, particularly in regard to the shield. There are approximately 20 horizontal shield lines, counting along the right border, but the vertical elements are intriguing. Above the ribbon are four stripes composed of three lines in each, while the outer two stripes below the ribbon also have three lines. The middle two stripes below the ribbon each have four individual elements. On every one of the smaller denominations, the vertical shield stripes consist of but two individual lines.
From The Jones Beach Collection. (PCGS# 61523)
