    1861-O Double Eagle, XF Details
    Important New Orleans Date

    1861-O $20 -- Damaged, Improperly Cleaned -- NCS. XF Details. Variety 1. As is the case with the 1861-O half dollar, the 1861-O double eagle was struck under three different authorities: the Federal government, the State of Louisiana, and the Confederacy. Only a single die pair was used to strike a total of 17,741 pieces. The base of the date is weak on a majority of examples, including the present coin, due to a lapped obverse die. The olive-gold surfaces are hairlined. The obverse is glossy and displays scattered small abrasions.
    Ex: Central States Signature (Heritage, 4/2015), lot 6418.
