    1854 Kellogg & Co. Twenty, AU53
    K-1a, Short Arrows

    1854 $20 Kellogg & Co. Twenty Dollar AU53 NGC. K-1a, R.4. Short Arrows, KELLOGG centered on coronet. Prior to the opening of the San Francisco Mint in April 1854, a shortage of ingots on the West Coast led bankers to petition local assayers to strike gold coins. Kellogg & Co. took up the cause and struck an estimated 180,000 twenty dollar pieces. The design was a slightly modified version of the relatively new double eagle. The K-1a variety is likely the first struck, as the reverse is the same used to produce the 1853 Moffat & Co. twenty dollar coins. This lightly circulated example displays strongly detailed devices over partly lustrous, yellow-gold surfaces. Abrasions are lightly scattered throughout.

Excellent prices when selling through their auctions and you don’t even have to put any reserves on any coins. Simply the biggest company but more importantly the best.
