Description 1860-S $20 AU53 NGC. In the 1850s and 1860s, the double eagle was the workhorse denomination in commerce, especially in the Western regions, and the majority of each year's production total circulated extensively. The 1860-S was no exception, as most surviving examples exhibit light to moderate wear and are often plagued by heavy abrasions. This lightly circulated example is an attractive exception to the rule, as the surfaces are surprisingly free of problems. Luminous honey-gold patina over each side further heightens the appeal. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $2820.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
