    Description

    1854 Twenty Dollar, AU58
    Scarce Large Date Variety

    1854 $20 Large Date AU58 NGC. The Small Date 1854 double eagles (also called the Medium Date) outnumber the Large Date variety by a factor of at least 6 to 1, based on the number of grading events and also by shipwreck recovery data. In near-Mint condition or finer, the Large Date twenties are rare.

    This example shows excellent remaining mint luster and a natural, orange-gold patina. The bagmarks are generally light, although somewhat numerous across the surfaces, suggesting this boldly struck representative is not one of the few recovered Large Date coins from sea salvage -- both by virtue of its original color and evidence of handling via overland transport. Census (for the variety): 19 in 58 (1 in 58+), 11 finer (9/14).(Registry values: P6) (NGC ID# 268S, PCGS# 98911)

    Weight: 33.44 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
