Gold $20 Liberty Head Type 1 Double Eagle Hub Varieties (The Arlington Collection)

One of the more interesting aspects of the $20 Liberty Head Type 1 Double Eagle is that there were only two master hubs used for the entire series. The first master hub was used from 1850 until 1858. In 1859, a new master hub replaced the first and was used from 1859 until 1866.

What makes this interesting is that the first master hub actually had the word LIBERTY misspelled as LLBERTY.
