Description 1882-S $20 MS61 NGC. Double eagle production at the San Francisco Mint remained strong in 1882, with a mintage of more 1.1 million coins. These accounted for a significant portion of the nearly 30 million dollars worth of gold coins that were exported for international trade, per Bowers. Many examples have found their way back to America, and therefore the issue is fairly plentiful for date representation. This example is sharply struck with radiant yellow-gold mint luster. Scattered abrasions contribute to the grade, the most noticeable being a few ticks in the field near Liberty's nose. An unusually attractive representative for the grade. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $3055.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
