    1865 With Motto Twenty Dollar
    Judd-453, PR64 Gilt

    1865 $20 Twenty Dollar, Judd-453, Pollock-526, High R.6, PR64 Gilt NGC. Both the obverse and the reverse are similar to the regular issue 1865 double eagle except that the motto IN GOD WE TRUST was added above the eagle as adopted in 1866. Struck in copper and gilt with a reeded edge. The first appearance at public auction was in Haseltine's April 1870 sale. Several strikings show a pronounced die crack to the left of the date, but this coin does not. This is a nicely gilt example with none of the underlying copper showing. Each side is remarkably clean, the only pedigree identifiers we see are a small rim nick at 12 o'clock on the obverse and a pair of rust spots (one small and one large) around star 5.
