Description

Conditionally Rare 1853 Assay Office Twenty, MS63 PCGS

1853 $20 Assay Office Twenty Dollar, 900 Thous. MS63 PCGS. K-18, R.2. Assay Twenties are seldom found in Uncirculated grades, even though more than 2.5 million pieces were produced in the year prior to the opening of the San Francisco Mint. Don Kagin in his standard reference Private Gold Coins and Patterns of the United States mentions that approximately thirty different dies were used to produce Kagin-18; this obverse die has the first 0 in the denomination widely repunched south, and the S in THOUS is repunched at the base. On the reverse, a teardrop die lump (as made) is noted below the upper right serif of the T in UNITED, and a clashmark (as struck) surrounds the second S in STATES. An exquisitely struck piece with pleasing luster, its only detriment is a tiny dig which serves as a pedigree marker, located between the eagle's neck and the left (facing) wing. Population: 23 in 63, 12 finer (9/03). Listed on page 292 of the 2003 Guide Book. (#10013) (NGC ID# ANHD, PCGS# 10013)
