    1854 Liberty Twenty, MS61
    Rare Large Date Variety

    1854 $20 Large Date MS61 NGC. Seemingly one of the unsung rarities of the series, and one that serious double eagle collectors seldom see in Mint State, much less have a realistic chance to acquire. This is just the fourth Uncirculated 1854 Large Date twenty we have offered in the past 15 years, two of which graded MS60, one was a net-graded piece, and one was an amazing MS64 coin that brought over $80,000 in 2007.

    This example is a wonderful, softly lustrous coin with honey-gold coloration and satinlike surfaces. Sharply struck motifs and nearly unabraded fields show only a few tiny marks, with none of any real consequence. Apparently struck from a logotype meant for silver dollars, this Guide Book variety is one of the hidden treasures of the series and an opportunity for those who appreciate its rarity and subsequent value. Census: 6 in 61, 3 finer (6/14).
