Description:
1855 Wass Molitor, Small Head Twenty, K-7
1855 $20 Wass Molitor Twenty Dollar, Small Head Genuine PCGS. K-7, R.6. The PCGS number ending in .98 suggests Damage as the reason, or perhaps one of the reasons, that PCGS deemed this coin not gradable. In our opinion, this coin has the details of an VF specimen that has been damaged, extensively repaired, and whizzed. The Small Head Wass Molitor is one of the classics among Territorial gold. As noted in Don Kagin's 1982 reference, this piece shows the expected weak strike on parts of the eagle's wings and eagle's neck. The surfaces on each side show extensive evidence of smoothing and tooling, which alternately have lessened impairments and strengthened design elements. The coin has a subdued yellow-gold color. One impairment remains: several parallel, shallow scratches in the right obverse field. Listed on page 377 of the 2011 Guide Book. (PCGS# 10357)
