The Unique 1851 US $20 struck on a U.S. Large Cent was displayed at the 2018 FUN show. It caused quite a stir like it has before. The NGC insert states its Ex-Judd and it is illustrated in the Judd pattern book.

I purchased this $20 struck on the Large Cent planchet from Fred Weinberg in 1975. It was featured in my 1978 mint error catalog, which is illustrated below.

I sold it to a collector of major error coins immediately. Years later he sold it to Fred, who had the honor of handling it twice. Fred sold it to Mark Lighterman in 1985. It remains in Markís collection to this date.

Itís one of the few US unique error coins that both Fred and I wished we had kept for ourselves. Itís a fabulous major mint error on a Twenty Dollar gold piece.
