Description & Analysis

A mere 571 $20 double eagles were struck at the Philadelphia Mint in 1882. This extremely low mintage ranks second only to the 1861 Paquet reverse issue. NGC has only graded a single mint state example, an MS62, and only 14 examples total. The proof is even rarer with only 59 pieces struck. Of those, NGC has only graded a total of six examples.
