    Legendary 1854-O Double Eagle AU53

    1854-O $20 AU53 PCGS. Among the popular New Orleans Mint Double Eagles, the 1854-O ranks a close second in overall rarity behind the equally well known 1856-O. The original mintage for the 1854-O was a paltry 3,250 pieces, and it is one of the rarest of all Coronet Twenties, being comparable to other such noteworthy issues as the 1870-CC, 1881, 1885, 1886, and the proof-only dates from the 1880s. Collector interest (and prices realized) for these prized O-mint rarities has escalated in recent years, as evidenced by two AU or better examples sold by Heritage last year, both in excess of $160,000. This bright yellow-gold example displays prooflike tendencies in the recesses and bits of reddish patina about the peripheries. Surface marks are scattered and generally unobtrusive. A fine bidding opportunity for the serious O-mint or Southern gold collector. Population: 1 in 53, 2 finer (11/04).
