Description

AU 1853 Assay Office Twenty

1853 $20 Assay Office Twenty Dollar, 900 Thous. AU50 NGC. K-18, R.2. This is one of the most available of all Territorial gold coins issued in California. As such, it is an excellent candidate for the collector who wants a single representative of Gold Rush coinage. This example clearly shows the 900 punched over 880. A deep, thin mark crosses the E in AMERICA, and the obverse has a rim ding at 8 o'clock. Substantial luster remains. Splashes of pale orange add to the eye appeal. Listed on page 355 of the 2008 Guide Book. (NGC ID# ANHD, PCGS# 10013)
