History, Information, and Value of 1860-O Gold Liberty Double Eagle

Value of 1860-O $20 Gold Coin

The 1860-O $20 double eagle is nearly always weakly pronounced at Libertys hair and around the border of the obverse, particularly at the left stars. The luster typically displays some degree of prooflike reflectivity, though this is usually obscured by abrasions or dampened by conservation. Original examples with strong eye appeal are very scarce and should command a heavy premium. Fewer than one hundred examples survive in all grades, with the heaviest distribution in the VF and EF grades. There are an estimated two dozen AU coins, with the majority of these in AU-50 and AU-53. Doug Winter suggests the existence of two Mint State examples for this year from the New Orleans mint. They are an MS-60PL graded by NGC and the Eliasberg specimen currently certified as AU-58 (PCGS), which Winter grades _at least MS-61 to MS-62.”
