1897 $20 Liberty. PCGS graded Proof 64 Deep Cameo. PCGS holder 3699393. Lovely rich golden orange toning on both sides. Only 86 minted. A deeply reflective specimen whose appreciable degree of contrast stands out for this normally well-produced double eagle Proof. Close inspection of the delicate surfaces makes us even more approving of the quality of this handsome representative. The obverse is boldly struck while on the reverse light magnification reveals incredible detail in the ornate design features; any hairlines are faint and wispy. These, of course, have no ill-effect on the dramatic eye appeal, only serving to shave a point off the coin's overall numerical guidance. It is believed that only a small minority of Proof 1897 twenties qualify at this or a better grade level. Meaning that this beautiful specimen represents a vital break for the gold enthusiast to acquire a glittering example. Pop 2; 4 finer in 65DCAM (PCGS # 99113) .
Estimated Value $40,000 - 50,000.
Ohringer Family Trust Holdings.

Realized $46,000
