    1854 Kellogg & Co. Twenty, K-1b
    Rare Uncirculated Example

    1854 $20 Kellogg & Co. Short Arrows Twenty Dollar MS60 PCGS. K-1b, R.5. John Glover Kellogg and G.F. Richter were both employed at the United States Assay Office until that institution was dissolved in December 1853. The two men subsequently founded Kellogg & Co. on December 19, 1853. The firm was petitioned by local businessmen to produce coins for the regional economy until the San Francisco Mint could produce sufficient coinage to satisfy the need. Kellogg & Co. responded by striking approximately 300,000 twenty dollar coins in 1854 and 1855.
    The present coin is a sharply detailed Mint State example, with pleasing greenish-gold surfaces and vibrant mint luster. This coin represents the K-1b variety, identified by the thin date and Short Arrows on the reverse. Housed in a green label holder. Listed on page 378 of the 2012 Guide Book. Population: 2 in 60, 8 finer (11/11).
    From The Klamath Mountain Collection. (NGC ID# ANHY, PCGS# 10222)

    What I most appreciated was how thorough you were when we initially met, how you were conservative in your estimates, not trying to get me to consign by giving false expectations, and then for delivering above and beyond on your commitment to me of a wonderful marketing campaign and a first rate catalog and photos, all of which resulted in a final total price realized that was nicely higher than what you had told me to expect.
