    Description

    Elusive Uncirculated 1866 Twenty Dollar

    1866 $20 MS60 NGC. Like the 1865, the 1866 is more difficult to locate in Mint State than the 1872, 1874, and 1875. Most survivors of this first-year Motto issue fall into the VF-AU grade range; Mint State examples are few in number and do not grade any finer than MS62 (at NGC and PCGS, 5/01). This is not a bad looking coin for the grade. The number of abrasions is minimal, the luster is bright with a frosty texture, and the color is an original, golden-rose shade. Boldly impressed, as well. (NGC ID# 269X, PCGS# 8949)

    Weight: 33.44 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
