Major Mint Errors on U.S. Gold Coins are very rare. This Draped Bust 1805 was double struck with the first strike off-center. It was authenticated and certified AU 58 by NGC. The double strike is obvious on both sides, with considerable detail that develops with careful examination. Immediately obvious are Liberty's forecurl on the cheek and three star points at the upper edge of the cap. Closer inspection also reveals TY and three stars in the right obverse field, and a star at the end of the drapery. The reverse has considerable additional detail, including stars and the first A in AMERICA superimposed on the clouds.
