1903 $20 Liberty. PCGS graded Proof 64. PCGS holder 50245579. Stunning golden orange colors displayed on both sides. A few reverse spots. Only 158 struck. Hardly any hairlines. All 1903 Proofs are the same, stylistically. This particular date has the obverse field deeply basined, from the die-making process, adding more curvature than normal, and giving an especially interesting satiny accent to the devices and also creating a little break at the bridge of Liberty's nose from the method used to polish the die. Every collector who contemplates buying a classic Proof Liberty $20 gold piece will want to check this out for its beauty as well as for the instructional experience. The present specimen combines classic conservative coin design, attractiveness, rarity, and everything else desirable. Certainly it will be an exciting moment when the sale occurs. Pop 12; 2 finer in 65 (PCGS # 9119) .
Estimated Value $30,000 - 35,000.
Ohringer Family Trust Holdings.

Realized $40,250
