Description & Analysis

The 1896 proof gold $20 has the highest mintage of any proof double eagle in the 19th century. However, it is likely that at least half of this original mintage has been lost to time. Most survivors earn at least a cameo designation, with some even going ultra cameo. The grades tend to hover within a point of gem.
