    1859-S Double Eagle, AU55
    Few Found in Treasures

    1859-S $20 AU55 NGC. CAC. The 1858-S and 1859-S double eagles were minted after the S.S. Central America sunk in September 1857, and long enough before the S.S. Republic and S.S. Brother Jonathan both sank in 1865, that few examples were found in those treasures. The result is that survivors are usually well circulated. This Choice AU 1859-S twenty is far above average. Both sides have nearly full luster with pleasing surfaces that show only minimal marks. An important opportunity for the double eagle specialist.(Registry values: N1793) (NGC ID# 269C, PCGS# 8928)

    Weight: 33.44 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
