1859-O Double Eagle, AU53
1859-O $20 AU53 NGC. In 1859 the New Orleans Mint coined
9,100 double eagles, and about 1% of those survive, about 75 to 85
coins according to Doug Winter. Among the survivors are less than
two dozen pieces that grade AU50 or better, although combined NGC
and PCGS population figures suggest a slightly higher total, but
those figures include resubmissions.
Fourth-Rarest O-Mint Twenty
Although an obvious mark is visible between stars 11 and 12, the surfaces are far finer than usually encountered. This piece has light yellow luster with excellent design definition and slightly reflective fields, especially in the protected areas. Census: 8 in 53, 26 finer (5/11).
