Description:
Brass Die Trial For the Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle--Elongated at the Mint
1907 Double Eagle, Judd-1779a, Pollock-2008, R.8. A brass trial piece of the Saint-Gaudens double eagle with a lettered edge. One of a tiny number of brass strikings of the new twenty-dollar gold piece. Among the last patterns released to collectors, all were intentionally elongated and their designs largely effaced by being passed through a rolling mill. These pieces are so elusive that they were unlisted in Dr. Judd's reference until his third edition was released. Only the faintest traces of the figure of Liberty can be guessed at, but the edge lettering and stars are fully evident.
Ex: M.A.N.A. Auction (Hollinbeck-Kagin's, 11/73), lot 1833. (PCGS# 61779)
