Mint Mark O
Description 1852-O $20 XF45 NGC. CAC. Variety 1. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. Similar to the 1851-O, the 1852-O double eagle can be located with little searching in the VF to XF grade range. AU examples are not overly scarce, but Mint State examples are decidedly rare. Perhaps the greatest illustration of this is that of the 20 coins recovered from the S.S. Republic, only one was in Mint State. This Choice XF representative presents the New Orleans gold collector with a slightly more affordable, but still highly appealing alternative. Deep green and honey-gold hues encompass each side, while wear is light, and noticeable surface abrasions are similarly few and far between. Ex: "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp & Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $65.00; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $4993.75.
