Description & Analysis

The 1882 twenty is ranked second in overall rarity among Liberty double eagle business strikes, as might be expected from an issue with a mintage of just 571 pieces, and is second only to the elusive 1861-P Paquet. As a result, there is heavy date pressure on the equally rare proofs, of which a mere 59 coins were originally struck.
