||1857-S $20 AU53 NGC. CAC. The 1857-S is an ever-popular Type One Liberty double eagle. Like the example above, this coin was obtained in the 1940s, and was considered among the finest before the Central America cargo was recovered. This treasured piece presents an excellent opportunity to own a near-Mint State representative of this issue. Soft remnants of original luster illuminate smooth green-gold surfaces on each side of this lightly circulated representative, well-deserving of the CAC green label. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
