Description

1853 K-19 Moffat & Co. Twenty, AU55
Rare High-Grade U.S. Assay Office Issue

1853 $20 Moffat & Co. Twenty Dollar AU55 NGC. K-19, High R.5. Although the name Moffat & Co. is plainly noticeable on the coronet, the 1853 gold twenties were actually issued by the new firm of Curtis, Perry, and Ward, acting under the auspices of the U.S. Assay Office of Gold. John Moffat authorized the use of his name on subsequent coinage of the firm when he retired in 1852. The design closely resembles the federal twenty dollar issues of the time.
The present coin shows light wear on the high points of the design, but most original detail still remains. The surfaces are pleasingly bright, but numerous small handling marks are present, especially on Liberty's cheek. Moffat & Co. twenties are scarce-to-rare in all grades, and very rare in AU55. Listed on page 367 of the 2010 Guide Book. Census: 7 in 55, 8 finer (3/10). (PCGS# 10255)

The marketing was exceptional from the photos to the ads in Civil War Times and North South Trader for the cross over people!!! I have had many emails from my Civil War collecting fraternity that saw these and I saw them at the national show in Nashville/Franklin in early December.
