1851-O Liberty Head Double Eagle. Winter-1. AU-53 (PCGS). With the largest mintage in this Southern gold series, the 1851-O (315,000 pieces produced) is the most plentiful New Orleans Mint twenty in an absolute sense. The 1852-O is actually easier to obtain in high grades (read: AU and Mint State), however, and even in lower About Uncirculated grades the issue is relatively scarce. Given the rarity of Mint State survivors, this minimally worn example is sure to be of keen interest to the advanced collector. Both sides exhibit only a trace of highpoint wear to evenly patinated, green-gold features. The overall strike is bold, and abundant satin luster is discernible as the coin rotates under a light. From the Fairmont Collection.
