Legend Rare Coin Auctions Auction Regency Event: Exclusively Legend Oct-2019 FROM THE CORONET GOLD COLLECTION This coin should not even exist! For an 1880-S, the quality is off the charts. No question this is the FINEST 1880-S that exists! John Albanese of CAC even called us to say how insane he thought the coin is. We have never seen any thing like this anywhere on any 1880's $20. Fully DMPL mirrors explode from all over. Because the mirrors are so deep there is a tiny bit of chatter visible. Obviously, none of it affects the grade. You do not have to imagine the mirrors either. The mirrors do have excellent clarity. The flash is intense and can be seen from feet away. Both sides also enjoy strong contrast. An even original gold color is spread all over. There are NO spots or discolorations. Miss Liberty and the details are thickly frosted and fully struck. The eye appeal is jaw dropping insane! PCGS 1, NGC 0, CAC 1. We obtained this coin privately. It has never been in a lower holder, nor has it ever been in auction. The current Collectors Universe Value is $125,000-slightly less than what we paid for this monster. If you seek a once in a lifetime TYIII $20, this coin for sure is it! We expect strong bidding here, so be prepared. Good luck! Cert. Number 36115573 PCGS # 8993
