    1858-O Twenty, AU Details
    Blundered Date, Breen-7192

    1858-O $20 Blundered Die -- Harshly Cleaned -- NCS. AU Details. Breen-7192. "1858-O Blundered die. Very rare. Part of a third 8 protrudes from lower curl into field." That is all Walter Breen said in his 1988 Complete Encyclopedia regarding this variety. In 1992, Doug Winter wrote "I have never personally seen or heard of such a piece and if this variety does exist it is extremely rare." A decade later, Winter along with Adam Crum stated that "there do not appear to be any significant die varieties." In 2004 Dave Bowers repeated the earlier 1988 information from Breen, adding nothing new. And in 2006 Doug Winter claimed that "there is just a single variety known." Subsequent research by Heritage has identified three 1858-O die varieties. Breen-7192 is our Variety 2, and it remains rarer than Variety 1. The present example is richly detailed and retains glimpses of bright luster. Both sides display many fine hairlines.
