    1852-O Double Eagle, AU53
    Historic New Orleans Issue

    1852-O $20 AU53 NGC. CAC. The 1852-O Liberty double eagle claims a substantial mintage of 190,000 pieces, but the issue circulated widely and few high-grade examples were saved for numismatic purposes. As a result, the 1852-O becomes scarce in AU grades and Mint State examples are rare. This AU53 specimen shows only light wear on the well-detailed design elements and the lemon-yellow surfaces exhibit the expected number of minor abrasions for a large gold coin that spent some time in circulation. Both sides retain much original mint luster, with flashes of prooflike reflectivity around the devices.(Registry values: N1793)
