    1852-O Double Eagle, AU58+
    Sharply Struck

    1852-O $20 AU58+ NGC. The 1852-O double eagle, from a mintage approaching 200,000 pieces, can be obtained through Choice AU condition, and even near-Mint State pieces appear at auction with some frequency. That said, the coin in the present lot is the only one that NGC has designated AU58+, and 15 examples finer.
    Bright yellow-gold surfaces retain ample luster in the recessed areas and exhibit sharply struck design features. Both sides reveal distributed small marks, but no more or more serious than what might be expected for a large, heavy gold coin that has experienced some circulation.
