    1854 Kellogg & Co. Twenty, AU58
    Long Arrows, K-2

    1854 $20 Kellogg & Co. AU58 NGC. K-2, R.4. John Glover Kellogg and G.F. Richter formed the well-respected firm of Kellogg & Co. after the United States Assay Office closed in December of 1853. The firm was petitioned to strike coins on an emergency basis early in 1854, to ease the shortage of coinage in the regional economy until the San Francisco Mint opened later in the year. In response, Kellogg & Co. struck more than 300,000 twenty dollar gold pieces in 1854 and 1855.

    Four die varieties are known for the 1854 Kellogg twenties. This is the popular K-2 variety with long arrows that have arrowheads that touch or nearly touch the inner curve of the scroll at the lower right. This attractive AU specimen is fully original with some olive-gold patina in the fields and over the raised features. Nicely defined in the centers with scattered small abrasions and a few heavier ones on Liberty's cheek. Listed on page 411 of the 2021 Guide Book. Census: 46 in 58, 27 finer (8/20).
