Lot Description
1858-S $20 AU58 NGC. The 1858-S double eagle has a large reported mintage of 846,710 pieces, but the issue was released into circulation and few examples were saved. The present coin is an admirable near-Mint survivor, with pleasing greenish-gold color and bright mint luster. A number of minor abrasions can be seen on both sides, none individually distracting. Attractive AU examples of this date are an appropriate choice for most collectors, as only 26 coins have been certified in higher numeric grades by NGC and PCGS combined (6/10).
