Finding any type of variety or mint error in the $20 Double Eagle series is very unusual, but this early date piece displays a clearly repunched date and is quite nice for the grade. Nice luster and a pretty light orange-tinted gold patina, this piece is sure to please the variety collector or the $20 specialist.
Exciting double eagle gold coin from the famous SS Central America shipwreck. One of the few gems that were recovered from the original find from the SS Central America.
A particularly tough date from a mintage of 175,000 pieces. Frosty luster with light, prooflike surfaces highlight this underrated issue. With a post-Civil War survival rate of maybe up to 2,000 items, it makes this coin incredibly difficult, especially in mint state grades or nearly so.
