Description

1853 Assay Office Twenty, K-18, AU55
Ex: Mulkin Collection

1853 $20 Assay Office Twenty Dollar, 900 Thous. AU55 NGC. K-18, R.2. The fineness 900 is punched over 880, as usually seen. Delightful straw-gold patina endows the surfaces of this well defined representative. Peppered abrasions on the obverse define the grade, but none are particularly bothersome. A hint of luster is seen on both sides. The U.S. Assay Office issues are particularly significant because of their status as a federally authorized coinage prior to the opening of the San Francisco Mint. Listed on page 371 of the 2012 Guide Book.
An old Paramount International Coin Corporation envelope (lot 1722) is included. (PCGS# 10013)
