Lot Description
1858-S $20 AU53 PCGS. As gold production increased at the San Francisco Mint through the second half of the 1850s, mintages at Philadelphia and New Orleans dramatically decreased. However, the S-Mint coins spent considerable time in circulation, so higher grade examples are seldom encountered. This lovely specimen has lustrous light yellow surfaces with orange peripheries, and presents excellent eye appeal.
