Description 1863-S $20 AU58 NGC. CAC. Lower-grade circulated examples of this San Francisco issue have long been readily obtainable, but high-grade pieces did not become truly available until the salvage of the S.S. Brother Jonathan and S.S. Republic shipwrecks, when nearly 300 such coins came to light. Still, Mint State representatives are scarce and, when found, are typically heavily abraded. This near-Mint example displays substantial honey-gold luster and boasts remarkably clean surfaces. Actual wear is almost nonexistent, and the eye appeal is truly exceptional. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $5875.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
