1856 $20.00 NGC AU55 CAC

The 1856 is one of my very favorite Type One double eagles and I think it is highly undervalued, especially in the higher AU grades. This clean, attractive example has a nice "Euro" appearance with even deep green-gold hues that cover minimally abraded and still-lustrous surfaces. While really a tough issue to find in this grade, the 1856 is doubly tough with natural color and surfaces. A very pleasing coin for the date and grade and one of the better values in the entire Type One series.
