    1891 Double Eagle, Appealing AU50
    Mintage of 1,390 Strikes for Circulation

    1891 $20 AU50 ANACS. Struck in the amount of only 1,390 pieces for circulation, the 1891 double eagle is a issue that is nonetheless somewhat underrated in comparison to the other, more well-known low-mintage series issues dating from the 1880s -- the 1885 and 1886 at 751 and 1,000 business strikes, the 1882 at 571 pieces. This is a nice, attractive, well-struck example of the 1891, showing much mirrored semiprooflike texture underlying and contrasting with light chatter in the fields on each side. No singular marks appear on either side. This piece offers great eye appeal for the assigned grade.(Registry values: N4719)
