    (1854) Kellogg Twenty Copper Die Trial
    Extremely Rare K-1 Variety, MS64 Brown
    Ex: Virgil Brand

    (1854) $20 Kellogg Twenty Dollar Copper Die Trial MS64 Brown PCGS. K-1, R.8. Kellogg & Co. struck approximately 300,000 twenty dollar gold coins in 1854 and 1855, using dies that closely resembled those used for regular federal coinage, but with legends that reflected the issuing company and place of striking. This extremely rare undated copper dies trial was struck before the date was added to the die. Don Kagin listed the K-1 copper die trial as an R.8 issue in his definitive reference on Territorial Gold, and this is the only time Heritage has been privileged to offer an example of this remarkable, historic pattern. Housed in a green label holder. Population: 1 in 64 Brown, 0 finer (11/11).
    Ex: Chicago Coin Company, purchased on December 30, 1911; Virgil Brand, inventory number 60,760; Jane Brand Allen; The Virgil M. Brand Collection Part II (Bowers and Merena, 6/1984), lot 1547.
    From The Klamath Mountain Collection. (NGC ID# ANKY, PCGS# 10219)
