Lot Description
1858-S $20 AU55 PCGS. Like most examples of the 1858-S double eagle, this specimen shows signs of circulation. The surfaces exhibit a number of grade-consistent abrasions on both sides, and the devices show traces of high-point rub. Few examples of this date escaped the rigors of circulation, and specimens in higher grades are quite scarce. The light greenish-gold surfaces of this piece remain brightly lustrous. Population: 40 in 55, 42 finer (5/11).
