Lot Description
1879 $20 MS61 NGC. The 1879 is a scarce, underrated Type Three twenty. Even though the mintage was significant with 207,630 pieces produced, it is seldom seen finer than the present coin. This bright yellow-gold example is peppered with small- to medium-sized abrasions on each side, yet the mint luster is fully intact. Well struck. From The Little Rock Collection, Part Two.
