1854 Kellogg & Co. (San Francisco) $20 Gold. NCS graded Details of AU-50. Improperly cleaned. Some marks on the face. Well struck and untoned specimen. A nice working coin with moderate hairlines from being cleaned. John Kellogg and G.F. Richter of Curtis, Perry & Ward, opened an assay office late in 1853. Their coinage operations helped fill a gap created during the period when the U.S. Assay Office was being converted into the Federal Mint in San Francisco. Once the branch mint began taking deposits, Kellogg's production ceased (PCGS # 10222) .
Estimated Value $3,000 - 3,500.

Realized $2,990
