United States, 20 Dollars, 1860

Description (Brief)
Mintage: 577,670
The population data show that the 1860 double eagle is rather plentiful in circulated condition. There was also a significant quantity found on the S.S. Republic. The ship contained nearly 100 coins, a few of which have been certified as MS-64 or MS-65. Three or four MS-64 coins have been offered at auction in the last few years. The Smithsonian examples for the issue are very modest and grade just Extremely Fine
