1881 $20 NGC AU50

Rare Issue

The 1881 Double Eagle is one of those scarce dates that are underappreciated except to the learned specialist. From a mintage of just 2,199 pieces, the 1881 $20 is simply an impossible date to locate in an acceptable state. This nice, eye-appealing AU is a quality survivor that is not likely to be offered again in quite some time.
