Description

Remarkable Cameo Proof 1860 Liberty Twenty, Ex: Trompeter Collection

1860 $20 PR64 Cameo PCGS. Ex: Trompeter. The scintillating surfaces show rich, yellow-gold coloration. Richly frosted, the devices contrast nicely with the bottomless fields. Both sides reveal a few inconspicuous hairlines, although we stress that the surfaces are free of unduly distracting impairments and are premium quality for the grade. This is a simply stunning upper Condition Census proof that shares the PR64 Cameo level with only 1 other NGC example (7/04).
While the current Guide Book lists this issue's mintage at 59 pieces, we caution against putting too much faith in this number when evaluating the rarity of extant representatives. In his Encyclopedia, Walter Breen asserts that fewer than 10 examples survive in all grades. The total number of pieces is probably much less as the two major grading services have graded only 7 pieces in all grades including Cameos (7/04). We feel confident in concluding that the proof 1860 production is one of the premier rarities in the entire Double Eagle series.
From The Greenwich Collection, Part Two.(#89072) (Registry values: P7) (NGC ID# 26DB, PCGS# 89072)
