1875-S $20
An enthralling example of this issue with highly lustrous and frosty yellow-gold surfaces and exceptional aesthetic appeal. Hints of pink and green are also present under close examination under a light. Sharply struck with strong obverse and reverse design features. Close examination will reveal a few tiny field scuffs, however, a quick glance suggests a coin approaching Gem quality. If graded separately, the reverse of this example would easily qualify as MS65 or finer. The reverse of this example has a small, bold mintmark centered over the right serif of N, and with intermittent cracks through the entire legend. As a design type, the Type Two Liberty double eagles are clearly the rarest in Mint State grades, especially one as nice as this example. (PCGS 8975) Choice Brilliant Uncirculated
