Lot Description
1890-S $20 MS64 NGC. Despite a plentiful mintage exceeding 800,000 pieces, the 1890-S is another Type Three twenty whose certified populations plummet at the near-Gem level. Even Select examples are scarce. The present near-Gem is a tale of two colors, with orange-gold in the centers bounded by greenish-gold at the margins on both sides. Bountiful luster appears, and there are relatively few abrasions. The strike is well-executed, as is the case with most Type Three twenties. Among the handful of finest certified at either service. Census: 7 in 64, 1 finer (11/09). From The Atherton Family Collection.
