Description 1862-S $20 AU55 NGC. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. Small numbers of this issue were recovered from the S.S. Brother Jonathan and the S.S. Republic shipwrecks (68 and 127 coins, respectively), but Mint State coins remain rare on the numismatic market, with none having been certified finer than MS63 (8/14). This Choice About Uncirculated representative exhibits rich honey-gold patina with hints of orange and apricot in the protected regions. The light high-point friction leaves overall strong design definition and substantial luster. 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 $3818.75. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
