    1851-O Double Eagle, AU55
    Scarce in This Grade

    1851-O $20 AU55 NGC. Variety 1. Die chips in front of Liberty's eye confirm the attribution. The 1851-O is the most collectible New Orleans double eagle overall, but Doug Winter notes that it is "scarcer in high grades (AU55 and above) than the 1852-O." This well-struck orange-gold twenty dollar displays a touch of friction and peppered abrasions. The overall appeal is excellent, with bold detail on the curls, glints of original mint luster, and a dearth of singularly distracting flaws.(Registry values: N1793)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 268J, PCGS# 8905)

    Weight: 33.44 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper

    Thanks to Heritage I realized a handsome profit for my coin submissions and intend to send most of the remainder of my collection to Heritage Auction Galleries for future auctions.
