MS60 Details 1907 High Relief, Wire Rim

1907 $20 High Relief, Wire Rim--Rims Filed, Cleaned--ANACS. MS60 Details. In the early days of coining the legendary High Relief double eagles, Mint personnel recognized a "fin" or thin lip of metal around or partially around the rim of most examples, the result of gold extruding upward into the space between the die and collar during striking. The Mint perceived this to be a flaw or defect, and the striking setup was accordingly modified slightly, so that about two-thirds of the 12,367 pieces coined show what is now called a "wire rim." Apparently early collectors also perceived it to be a defect, as many pieces including the present coin today show filing in an attempt to efface the wire rim. Some traces still show on each side, but the filing is well done and much appeal remains on the coin, despite light hairlines from an old cleaning that was probably contemporaneous. Better than it sounds, and an affordable example of this popular issue.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 26F2, PCGS# 9135)
