    Impressive Mint State 1855 Kellogg $20 Gold Piece

    1855 $20 Kellogg & Co. Twenty Dollar MS62 NGC. Breen-7920, Kagin-3a. In 1855, the Federal Mint in San Francisco was just beginning operations, and there can be little doubt that the citizens and business owners of that city felt more inclined to trust the private coiners, especially a firm such as Kellogg & Co., highly respected as it was. Total production of the $20-pieces was approximately 300,000 coins. Those dated 1855 are marginally scarcer than the 1854 coins.
    While the surfaces are mildly abraded, this is an extremely attractive and nicely detailed Kellogg "double eagle." Although not identical, the design is very similar to the federal issues of this period, although with different inscriptions, and with slightly different treatment of the devices. This splendid example has brilliant yellow-gold luster with a trace of green coloration. The dies where well-used, as evidenced by minor rim breaks, especially on the obverse. The final 5 in the date is only partially complete, probably from a lapped or polished die.(#10225) (NGC ID# ANJ2, PCGS# 10225)
