Description 1858-S $20 AU55 NGC. CAC. Garrett and Guth, in their Encyclopedia of U.S. Gold Coins, write of this issue: "Not surprisingly, most of the 1858-S double eagles seen are low grade and heavily abraded, as the issue saw heavy commercial use. Very few examples were saved, and in Mint State this issue is very rare." This Choice AU representative showcases substantial yellow-gold luster over much of each side, while major abrasions are seemingly nonexistent. The eye appeal is proportionately high. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $3290.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
