    1863 Double Eagle, AU53
    Smooth and Partially Lustrous

    1863 $20 AU53 NGC. A low-mintage issue for the Philadelphia Mint (142,790 coins struck), the 1863 is today generally found in AU condition or thereabouts. The average certified grade between the two leading services combined falls between AU50 and AU53. Examples are seldom seen in any Mint State grade, though the supply has been somewhat improved as a result of S.S. Republic recoveries.

    This AU53 representative boasts pleasing luster that emanates from orange-gold surfaces. Each side features a bold strike and fewer marks than might be expected for the grade. The only major abrasion is a tick on Liberty's lower neck above the bust. An attractive Type One double eagle.
