Description:
Appealing 1929 Double Eagle, MS65 PCGS
1929 $20 MS65 PCGS. The 1929 opens the final segment of the Saint-Gaudens double eagle series, and every issue from this year through 1933 is a major rarity. While the '29 is the least rare of this group, it is still a coveted key date whose appearance at auction is an occasion of note among specialists. As we indicated in the introduction to the '29 issue, fewer than 300 coins have been have been certified by PCGS and NGC combined. MS65 pieces are rare, with only 23 pieces graded by both serves, and a mere 3 coins finer (9/05). And according to our records, the major auction houses have seen the appearance of only 20 Gems in the past 15 years or so, with just one piece grading higher.
As we also previously wrote, the typical 1929, with its generally sharp strike and fully lustrous and frosty surfaces, exudes considerable eye appeal. The example we offer in this lot fits that bill to a tee. All of the design elements are sharply delineated, though minor softness is noted on portions of the Capitol dome. The frosty surfaces exhibit vibrant luster and are toned in variegated yellow, peach, orange-gold, and lime-green. The surfaces are well preserved, although a few minor marks on Liberty's head and left leg are mentioned for accuracy. While this issue often contains copper stains, only one tiny spot is located beneath the eagle's neck. All in all, this is a very appealing Gem. Population: 18 in 65, 3 finer (9/05).
