    Mint State 1854 Large Date Twenty

    1854 $20 Large Date MS60 NGC. The 1854 Large Date, while much rarer than the Small Date, is a variety that occasionally can still be cherrypicked today; in reality, the two variants could be called "Small Date" and "Not Quite So Small Date," leaving room for knowledgeable collectors to employ their skills. On the Large Date, the top of the 1 virtually touches the forepart of the bust truncation, and the right edge of the 4 is closer to the right edge of the lowest curl. Garrett and Guth note that the recovery of the S.S. Republic shipwreck, which foundered in 1865 off the coast of Georgia, offered a random sample of 36 Small Dates and seven Large Dates.
    The present golden-orange specimen offers surprisingly strong appeal and would garner a finer grade, were it not for a planchet flaw in Liberty's hair behind the coronet. Otherwise, the orange-gold surfaces are well-struck and relatively mark-free, showing minor bits of die grease near the obverse rim at stars 10 and 12. The reverse is thoroughly engaging and distraction-free.(Registry values: P6) (NGC ID# 268S, PCGS# 98911)
