1853/2 $20.00 PCGS AU50 CAC

Its status as the only overdate in the Liberty Head double eagle series makes the 1853/2 a very in-demand coin. It is especially desirable in collector grades (i.e., EF40 to AU50) and it becomes prohibitively expensive in the higher AU to Mint State range. This lustrous example has light green-gold color and very good detail. Its shows the diagnostic die dot below the right foot of the R in LIBERTY and the "spray" behind the neck of Liberty (a clashmark). Remarkably, there has been but one PCGS AU50 example of this variety sold at auction since 2004, Heritage 7/10: 4823 which brought $4,313.

This is the only CAC approved example of this date in AU50. Three finer pieces have been approved as well.
