Description

1853 Assay Office Twenty, 884 Thous., K-17
AU Details, Rare and Desirable

1853 $20 Assay Office Twenty Dollar, 884 Thous. -- Altered Surface -- Genuine PCGS. AU Details. K-17, Low R.7. With a Low R.7 rarity ranking, the K-17 Assay Office twenties with fineness 884 THOUS are far more elusive than their 900 fine counterparts, which took over when customs officials were ordered not to accept any private gold coins that failed to comply with the federal standard. This example shows excellent detail remaining, but there are scattered ticks and scrapes noted on both sides, most singular a dig in the engine-turned reverse below the legend. There is some field smoothing/repair above the eagle's head, with some darker field color there. Nonetheless, this remains a rare and desirable piece, listed on page 379 of the 2013 Guide Book.
