At Stack's Bowers Rarities Night, Two NGC Double Eagles Fly.

Recent information has informed us that historic United States coins that have been certified by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation® (NGC®) performed particularly well at the Baltimore Rarities Night event held by Stack's Bowers Galleries

Two $20 coins from New Orleans were the most valuable lots at the sale that took place on November 14, 2019. These coins were an 1856-O Liberty Head double eagle and an 1854-O Liberty Head double eagle, and they earned a combined total of more than $500,000 (USD) during the sale.

For its grade of NGC AU 53, the 1856-O Liberty Head Double Eagle brought in a total of $264,000 (USD). It is one of only 2,250 pieces that were created since the New Orleans Mint only received a small portion of the gold that was mined in California during the middle of the 1850s for the purpose of producing double eagle currency

Due to the fact that the majority of these coins were distributed to San Francisco or the Northeast, collectors consider this coin to be a true southern belle.

An 1854-O Liberty Head Double Eagle that was graded NGC XF 45 and was minted two years previously brought in a total of $240,000 (about USD).

Additionally, this coin is one of the rarest examples of a double eagle. In recent years, there have been very few instances that have been put up for auction, and it is believed that there are fewer than forty examples present.

One of the Draped Bust Half Dime series' examples, which was produced in the smallest mintage of the entire series, had a spectacular day at auction.

This 1802 Half Dime graded NGC AU 50 is a classic numismatic rarity that comes with a price tag of $192,000 (USD). It is widely acknowledged as the most important date among all of the issues of the denomination.
