Congrats on a Fantastic and unexpected Find !!
Your coin looks to be in a High Grade state,
I read that the first wear point is the wreath tips.
I can't see if there is a MM on yours, it would be at the bottom of wreath.
Made for only 6 years, and released along with the first US $20 Golds,
triggered by the discovery of Sutters Mill Gold in '49.
the reverse of these had weak strikes, here's an MS example from the Philad Mint:

Beautiful finds for sure. Congratulations!! Now I'm thinkin' that St. Christopher might have lead you to that gold coin pendant that's loaded with diamonds! It must be so heavy that it wore through the loop on top. Good job boys!!

If Mother Earth give,s us precious metals like gold silver copper and iron why leave them in the ground to disappear forever , dig them out and save History !!
