1853 U.S. Assay $20 Gold Piece Certified as Double Struck by NGC

All Major Mint Errors on U.S. Gold Coins are extremely rare. The fact that this is a U.S. Territorial Gold Piece with a Major Error is unbelievable. This is a double struck $20 Assay. The reverse is slightly rotated. Both the obverse and the reverse are double struck.

The United States opened this Assay Office as a provisional Government Mint to accommodate the Gold from the California Gold Rush until there was an establishment of a permanent Branch Mint. In 1852, this provisional Government Mint was reorganized and the Principals were Curtis, Perry and Ward. $10, $20 and $50 denominations were struck. The $10 and $20s were round and the $50 were octagonal shaped.

This piece is 900 THOUS. Kagin-18, Breen-7723. Rarity-2. It is struck with a slight greenish-gold hue to it and has considerable luster remaining on both the obverse and reverse.

This incredible Double Struck U.S. Assay $20 Gold piece would be the centerpiece of a Territorial Gold Collection, U.S. Gold Collection or a Collection of Exceptional Major Mint Errors.
