    1859-S Twenty, Choice AU
    Pleasing Reddish-Gold Surfaces

    1859-S $20 AU55 NGC. The 1859-S twenty, with a business strike mintage of more than 600,000 pieces, is typically found in XF and AU. Like most coins of this era, the 1859-S is very rare in Mint State. This Choice AU coin displays traces of luster in the recesses of the reddish-gold surfaces. Its design features are well brought up, though portions of Liberty's hair are soft. A few of the expected bag marks are visible, especially on the obverse.
    Ex: Dallas Signature (Heritage, 11/2007), lot 1947; Summer FUN Signature (Heritage, 7/2009), lot 1978.(Registry values: N1793) (NGC ID# 269C, PCGS# 8928)

    I received the catalog and was very impressed with its color illustrations, descriptions and attractive layout. (It has better production values than the New York houses.)
