Bright, Satiny Surfaces, Slight Trace of a Wire Rim
The result of Saint-Gaudens' efforts and the noninterference of the Mint (especially Charles Barber) is easily seen on the High Relief twenties from 1907, and this coin is an excellent example. The design motifs appear lifelike, quite unlike the coins in circulation at the time. This is an especially vibrant, satiny example whose yellow-gold surfaces show just a tinge of reddish patina. Essentially unabraded surfaces further explain the Gem designation.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 26F2, PCGS# 9135)
