    Scarce, Low Mintage 1891 Double Eagle, AU58

    1891 $20 AU58 NGC. The 1891 is another low mintage issue with only 1,390 pieces produced. Of that number, only 45 to 55 pieces are believed extant today. When available, the typical 1891 is prooflike and extensively abraded with poor eye appeal. This piece has confirmed reflectivity in the fields but minimal large abrasions, the most obvious being in the left obverse field out from Liberty's face and two milling marks above DOLLARS. Sharply struck, the surfaces have a pronounced accent of reddish patina that adds to the coin's originality and desirability.
    From a Magnificent Collection of Double Eagles. (#9016) (Registry values: P3, N6500) (NGC ID# 26C2, PCGS# 9016)
