1858-S $20.00 NGC AU55

Lustrous with nice light yellow-gold colors that show a tinge of rose on either side. This piece has quite a bit of body remaining and it didn't see a whole lot of circulation. The marks and abrasions on the surfaces appear to be more the results of having spent time loose in a bag with other coins and becoming scuffed as a result. The 1858-S double eagle is a tougher date that doesn't have a large number of higher grade survivors as a result of shipwrecks. In fact, the 1858-S is very rare in Uncirculated and hard to find even in properly graded AU55 to AU58.
