1852-O $20 Liberty. PCGS graded AU-58. Lightly toned with lots 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. A choice example with some brilliance left in the orange-gold surfaces, the fields quite attractive. The design features are all sharp while the surfaces show only a few tiny marks. Pop 29; 12 finer, 3 in 60, 3 in 61, 6 in 62 (PCGS # 8907) .
Estimated Value $11,000 - 12,000.

Realized $13,225
