1860-S $20 Liberty. PCGS graded AU-58. Loaded with luster and only scattered bagmarks on the face and in the reverse field. Far fewer marks than usual for the Type 1 series, which ran from 1850 to 1866 and lacks IN GOD WE TRUST on the coin. While the East Coast of the United States was feeling the first effects of dis-Union in 1860, out West everything was hunkydory, life went on as usual, gold circulated (wasn't hoarded as it was in the East), and San Francisco kept turning out these beautiful twenty dollar Liberties. However, many were eventually melted, if not in the later 19th century, then after 1930s. Pop 26; 29 finer. (PCGS # 8931) .
Estimated Value $4,000 - 4,500.

Realized $4,600
