1850 $20 PCGS MS60

DLRC #: 87810 // PCGS #: 8902

A lustrous, yellow-gold example. A patch of hairlines in the left obverse field appear to be Mint-made die striations. MS-63 reverse. Housed in an old, green-label PCGS holder. This was the first year of production of the Double Eagle, a new denomination made possible by the huge influx of gold from the mines of California. Over a million 1850 "Twenties" were made, but Mint State examples remain very scarce today.
