1851-O $20 Liberty. NGC graded AU-58. Untoned with reflective surfaces. The 1851-O Double Eagle is one of the more available issues among the popular New Orleans Mint Double Eagles. Examples can be found without little difficulty until the low-AU threshold is reached. Higher AU examples, such as this lovely AU58 are legitimately scarce. Allowing for a few resubmissions, it is doubtful that more than a three score survive at this level. The soft smooth luster displays excellent sharpness in all areas and are golden colored hues. Abrasions are relatively minimal for the assigned grade, including one on the chin and another in the field by Liberty's nose. Outstanding visual presence on this example. Pop 57; 19 finer (PCGS # 8905) .
Estimated Value $8,000 - 9,000.

Realized $15,525
