    1858-O Double Eagle, AU50
    Seldom Seen Finer

    1858-O $20 AU50 PCGS. Variety 1. Although not as rare as the heralded 1854-O and 1856-O, the 1858-O double eagle is a notably challenging issue in its own right, similar in high grade rarity to the 1857-O, a significant semikey date from this mint. The 1858-O had a mintage of only 35,250 pieces, and Doug Winter estimates as few as 150 to 175 examples are extant. Of these, AU representatives are about as fine as the average collector can obtain, as Mint State pieces are prohibitively rare and comparably more expensive. This AU coin displays pale yellow-gold color with satiny surfaces and some semiprooflike reflectivity remaining in the fields. A couple old reed marks on the obverse portrait are the only abrasions of note.
