Lot Description
1858-S $20--Obverse Rim Filed--NGC. Unc Details. The 1858-S double eagle is rare in Mint State, where most of the known pieces fall into the MS60 to MS61 range. Ample luster is evident on the yellow-gold surfaces of this Unc Details specimen, and with the exception of minor softness on portions of Liberty's hair, the devices are well defined. Light file mark on parts of the obverese rim are visible under a loop, and a few scattered marks are noted. Overall, a rather nice coin, the NGC disclaimer notwithstanding.
