1864 $20 NGC Proof 65 Ultra Cameo
What Legendary Collections Are Made Of! Perhaps as few as 8-10 are Known in all grades of condition! The presence of a Proof Civil War $20 is an accomplishment not awarded to many. It’s not just because of the significant price of entry required to obtain one, it’s that they’re so very rare and so desirable that opportunities can elude even the most resourceful collectors for years at a time. This is an extraordinary Gem Proof example with phenomenal contrast between the devices and the fields, so designated with its Cameo designation by NGC. Proof Type I $20’s are regarded as the crème de la crème of numismatic mastery. Even some of the greatest collections of all time lacked an example of one, and this is the only one we’ve ever been able to offer! A confluence of events undoubtedly contributed to the date's extreme rarity, though they many not fully explain why so few examples are available today.This exquisite Gem Ultra Cameo example will be right at home in any of the world’s best collections or museums. With only 50 Minted and perhaps 8-10 known to exist in all grades today it is a wonderful opportunity while it lasts.
