1865 $20 Brother Jonathan PCGS MS63

1854-C Liberty $2.50 PCGS MS62 CAC - $28,950.00

Tied for the finest graded at PCGS. Mint state survivors are extremely rare, and public offerings of these pieces especially so. As such, any offering of this scarce Charlotte Mint issue in uncirculated conditions should be especially considered by the specialist of gold coinage struck at this Southern Mint.

Please contact me by email or telephone 1-800-624-1870 to reserve this great coin.

Of the total mintage, only 80 to 90 pieces are known in all grades, with just a few of these remaining in any uncirculated condition. Even AU pieces are scarce, although they are found with some regularity. This can absolutely not be said of pieces which have been graded Mint State by any of the major grading companies.

Population numbers are low, no doubt also influenced by resubmissions, and public offerings are seldom seen. Breen considered this issue to be very rare, with an addition remark ‘Extremely rare in EF”. AU and Mint State survivors were not even mentioned in his Encyclopedia, published in 1988.

With light yellow color, this piece is near the top of the condition census for this issue. The strike is better than usually seen, with the stars showing near full peripheral lines. Further to that, the fields are not as abraded as would be expected for the grade. Full, satiny luster, typical for the issue is seen on both sides, and is quite a pleasure to look at. A rare and important opportunity for the specialist of Southern gold coins, an era of American numismatics which has seen increasing popularity and prices during the last few years.
