Owner Comments:

Ex. Bowers and Merena Auction, August 2010. Catalog description, "Similar in overall rarity to the 1851 and 1852, the 1853 is one of the more readily obtainable issues in the early Type I Double Eagle series. Examples that grade finer than AU-53 are conditionally rare, however, this fact confirming the importance of this minimally circulated survivor. A lovely near-Mint coin with rich reddish-rose patina, both sides are boldly struck with only light wear to report. The outward appearance is remarkably smooth for a circulated Type I Twenty, and there really are no individually mentionable abrasions. Lustrous, attractive and sure to sell for a premium bid. PCGS Population: 41; 32 finer." From the Horseshoe Collection.
Indeed, this coin sold for nearly double the price of a typical AU58 at the time.
