Lot Description
1879 $20 MS62 PCGS. The 1879 is an unusual issue that is seldom seen below AU55 and also seldom seen above MS60, suggesting that it did not circulate as freely as other P-mint twenties of the era. This is a highly lustrous and sharply struck example that displays generous amounts of reddish patina over the surfaces. The obverse shows a number of small to medium sized abrasions, as one would expect of a gold coin in this grade. Population: 32 in 62, 5 finer (1/05).
