1859-S. NGC graded AU-50. The letters in "Liberty" are doubled, an interesting artifact of the die making process. In 1859, a new "Rush" started in the West, this time following the discovery of the Comstock gold, silver, and lead deposits in Nevada City. Production levels were high at the San Francisco Mint. However, most $20 gold pieces saw heavy circulation which limits the available supply of nice AU pieces like the coin being offered (PCGS # 8928) .
Estimated Value $1,600 - 1,700.

Realized $2,645
