    1860-O Double Eagle, XF Details
    Partly Reflective, A Rare New Orleans Issue

    1860-O $20 -- Filed Rims -- PCGS Genuine. XF. Variety 1. The 1860-O double eagle is one of the great rarities of the New Orleans gold series. Only 6,600 pieces were struck, and examples are scarce in all grades; Mint State coins are prohibitively rare and unknown in the finer levels. This piece is bright yellow-gold and boldly detailed, showing light rub in the fields and over the central devices. The protected portions of the fields are deeply mirrored, suggesting an early striking from this die pair. The rim filing noted by PCGS is only seen on the obverse rim, and it is minor to the point that the casual observer would likely miss it entirely.
