1852-O $20
Lot 1207
1852-O $20
Light patina with traces of mint luster on both sides. The 1852-O twenty, while scarce overall, is one of the more readily available New Orleans Mint issues. After this year, the double eagles from this mint would become very scarce to very rare. Most known 1852-Os are Very Fine to Extremely Fine, a familiar mantra for all double eagles of the decade except for some notable hoard coins, mainly from the San Francisco Mint. The mintage of this issue was a respectable 190,000 coins. This is an exceptionable example with some brilliance left on the olive-gold surfaces, the fields are attractive with minimal marks, and the design features are all sharp while the surfaces show only a few tiny marks.
