    Amazing Gem Cameo Proof 1891 Liberty Twenty Dollar

    1891 $20 PR66 Deep Cameo NGC. The 1891 Double Eagle was struck in a year when the vast majority of large gold coin production was earmarked for the San Francisco facility, certainly a practical policy since nearly all newly mined gold ore originated in the Pacific West. As a result, only 1,390 business strikes were produced along with 52 proofs. Both are predictably elusive today, with the tiny quantity of business strikes almost always seen with some degree of circulation and fewer than half of the proof mintage believed to be extant.
    The surfaces on this spectacular proof Double Eagle display the slightest haziness over fields of uncanny depth of mirrored reflectivity, while the central features are heavily frosted, and the resultant contrast is extreme. Solid Condition Census quality on this difficult and sought-after proof Double Eagle issue. Population: 3 in 66, 1 finer (4/04).
    From The Greenwich Collection, Part One. (#99107) (NGC ID# 26EC, PCGS# 99107)
