    Description

    1854 Kellogg & Co. Twenty, XF45
    K-1b, Late Territorial Issue

    1854 $20 Kellogg & Co. XF45 PCGS. K-1b, Short Arrows, R.5. When the San Francisco Mint was authorized, the U.S. Assay Office ceased operations at a time when no other private coiners were produced gold coinage for the region. Due to delays at the Federal Mint, Kellogg & Co. filled the coinage void with their $20 gold pieces in early 1854 under Kellogg & Richter. The following year, they produced twenty dollar gold pieces under the operation of Kellogg & Humbert. Traces of luster remain on this Choice XF example that saw light use at the time it was issued. Mostly trivial marks are evident, with a few larger marks that will help track the provenance. Listed on page 412 of the 2020 Guide Book. (NGC ID# ANHY, PCGS# 10222)
