Description:
Select 1907 Wire Rim High Relief Twenty
1907 $20 High Relief, Wire Rim MS63 PCGS. When President Theodore Roosevelt wanted to transform American coinage, he took inspiration from the ancient Greeks, and the gifted sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens followed this cue. Both Roosevelt and Saint-Gaudens also looked back to the Greeks for inspiration in producing coins struck in high relief. Because of the difficulty in striking such coins in high relief, only 12,367 pieces were produced. They proved to be instant classics and instant collectibles, bringing more than face value even when they were new. Of course, it will take far more than $20 to take home this MS63 example, a moderately patinated sun-gold beauty with a prominent wire rim around the upper obverse. Surface quality is decent for the grade, though a small nick is noted on Liberty's left (facing) leg.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 26F2, PCGS# 9135)
