1907 $20 High Relief, Wire Rim MS62 NGC. CAC....
Wire Rim Variant
The figure of Liberty from the Sherman was undoubtedly the inspiration for the sculptor's figure of Liberty used on the High Relief double eagle. However, rather than being a part of a grouping, as Liberty is seen in the Sherman Memorial, on the High Relief twenty it is detached and a character in its own right. This detachment allows the viewer to give full attention to the central device on the obverse, and the technique of striking the coins in high relief further enhances the importance of the forward-striding figure of Liberty. The satiny surfaces display a few small contact marks on each side, which explain the grade, the most obvious of which are located near the reverse rim at 9 o'clock. The natural bright yellow-gold color of the coin has taken on only a slight tinge of reddish patina.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 26F2, PCGS# 9135)
