1907 $20 High Relief, Wire Rim AU55 NGC....
Pronounced High Relief Feature
"I was exceedingly humiliated today to have the Secretary of the Treasury call attention to the excessive burr, or fin, on one of the new double eagle pieces now being distributed."
The "problem" of the burr, or wire rim, was only partially solved before the limited production of High Relief twenties ceased. In addition to a noticeable wire rim, this piece also displays bright reddish-tinted surfaces with considerable mint luster remaining. Only slight abrasions are noted, and those are only evident with a magnifier. Excellent value.(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 26F2, PCGS# 9135)
