    1871 Double Eagle, AU50
    Lustrous Fields, Elusive This Fine

    1871 $20 AU50 NGC. The 1871 is elusive, proportionately so with its small mintage of 80,125 coins, but collector recognition is often focused on branch mint issues instead. This partially lustrous AU example offers the astute collector a chance to acquire a scarce coin at a reasonable price. Each side displays original straw-gold coloration with light friction over the high points of the design. Housed in a prior generation holder.
    From The Ohio Valley Collection.(Registry values: P6)
