    Extremely Rare 1854-O Double Eagle, AU50

    1854-O $20 AU50 PCGS. The 1854-O is a legendary rarity in the Coronet double eagle series. It is the second rarest O-mint twenty and is generally considered the third rarest in the series, trailing only the 1861 Paquet and the 1856-O. Only 25-35 1854-O double eagles are known in all grades with five to seven in About Uncirculated and none in Uncirculated. This piece shows modest friction over the highpoints, as one would expect, and the only mentionable mark is a curved planchet lamination in the lower left field out from Liberty's neck. The surfaces are bright green-gold with a slight accent of reddish patina on each side. A rare opportunity for the advanced collector of New Orleans gold or a Liberty double eagle collector.
    From a Magnificent Collection of Double Eagles. (#8912) (Registry values: P10, N75000) (NGC ID# 268T, PCGS# 8912)
