Description

    1852-O Liberty Twenty, AU58
    Popular Branch Mint Type Coin

    1852-O $20 AU58 NGC. Variety 1. Despite a modest original mintage of 190,000 pieces, the 1852-O is the most common O-mint double eagle of the 1850-1852 era in high grade, making it a popular choice of mintmark type collectors. Probably more than 1,000 examples of this date still survive in all grades, but the 1852-O does become very scarce at the near-Mint level.
    The present coin is a satin-finished example whose lightly rubbed surfaces reveal flashes of original luster at most angles. The devices are sharply impressed, and the number of abrasions is consistent with the assigned grade. A bright, yellow-gold representative. One diagonal scratch is seen across Liberty's hair and neck. Census: 76 in 58 (3 in 58+), 15 finer (11/12).(Registry values: N1793) (NGC ID# 268L, PCGS# 8907)

    Weight: 33.44 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
