Description 1858 $20 -- Obverse Improperly Cleaned -- NGC Details. Unc. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. The 1858 double eagle is a conditionally challenging issue; the date is usually seen in the XF to AU grade range, but any piece achieving the Mint State level is decidedly rare, and the majority of these coins are heavily abraded. This example is unworn, with radiant honey-gold luster and slight semiprooflike mirroring in the fields. The obverse exhibits faint, scattered hairlines in the fields, hence the NGC details grade, though these are undetectable to the unaided eye and hardly inhibit the luster. The motifs are well-defined and abrasions are minimal. A few grease stains (as struck) are noted on the obverse. 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 @ $75.00; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $2820.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
