    Elusive and Desirable 1859-O Double Eagle AU58

    1859-O $20 AU58 PCGS. The 1859-O is an elusive and widely recognized issue among Liberty Double Eagles. Only 9,100 pieces were struck, and it ranks fourth among New Orleans Double Eagles in overall rarity, narrowly trailing the 1855-O. An estimated 75-85 pieces are known in all grades and, importantly, only a single Mint State example (a PCGS MS60) has been certified by either major service. This Condition Census example is easily as nice as any 1859-O we have ever offered. Both sides show characteristic prooflike qualities and are draped in natural reddish patina. Surface marks are refreshingly minimal and only the slightest break in luster can be detected on the highpoints and exposed fields. Expect strong competition for this desirable O-mint rarity. Population: 4 in 58, 1 finer (11/04).
