    1869-S Twenty Dollar, MS62
    Far Better Than the Typical Survivor

    1869-S $20 MS62 NGC. Small Squat S. The 1869-S twenty dollar is plentiful in Extremely Fine and About Uncirculated grades. However, Mint State examples are scarce through MS62 and rare any finer, most being in the MS60 to MS61 range, the finest condition collectors are likely to encounter of this issue.

    Rich peach-gold surfaces display subtle traces of mint-green color. The design features exhibit better definition than usual, though the first three stars reveal normal softness at the centers. Most of Liberty's hair, the shield, and the eagle's plumage are strong. Frosty luster is also above-average, though its flow is occasionally broken by light to moderate marks. All in all, an appealing piece for the designated grade. Census: 19 in 62 (3 in 62+), 5 finer (4/20).
