1890 $20.00 NGC MS62 CAC

The 1890 is one of my favorite "secret" dates in the Type Three series. It is only moderately scarce in MS60 and MS61 grades but it is a tough coin in MS62 and a very scarce to rare issue in MS63 and above. Its also expensive in MS63 with an example costing $8,000-10,000 depending on what it looks like. Which is why I think this high end MS62 is a great value at less than half the price of an MS63. It is totally original with a great "skin" and lovely rich orange-gold color. A few marks on the obverse narrowly keep this coin from an MS63 grade but it is truly high end for an MS62.

CAC has approved eight in this grade and only two finer.
