    Description

    1859-S Type One Double Eagle, AU58
    Exemplary Quality

    1859-S $20 AU58 NGC. A bit of high-point rub keeps this near-Mint, Type One double eagle from a full Mint State technical grade, but it is certainly a high-end AU of the finest quality. Softly lustrous and serenely unbothered, very few abrasions appear on the frosted surfaces of this twenty. Substantial orange-gold and green-gold appeal glistens from the glowing surfaces. Very scarce this nice -- an exemplary representative of this non-salvaged issue.
    From the Collection of Donald E. Bently, sold for the benefit of the Bently Foundation.(Registry values: N1793) (NGC ID# 269C, PCGS# 8928)

    Weight: 33.44 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
