United States $20.00 Liberty Head Double Eagle 1849-1907


In California on January 24, 1848, James Marshall was inspecting a sawmill he was building near Sutter’s Fort on the American River. The severe rainstorms of the previous week had washed away rocks, soil and sediment. Marshall noticed gold colored flakes everywhere and the following morning found a yellow nugget, the assay of which proved that he had indeed discovered gold.
