Description:
Key Date 1920-S Eagle, AU55
1920-S $10 AU55 NGC. CAC. From a mintage of 126,500 pieces, the 1920-S is the third rarest date of the Indian Head design type, after the famous 1907 Rolled Edge variety and the fabulous 1933 date. Ten dollar gold coins were not minted at the other Mints in 1920. Indeed, the economic chaos surrounding the end of World War I had made the coins nearly obsolete. No eagles had been minted since 1916, and the denomination would not be coined again until 1926. The survival of any 1920-S eagle was purely a matter of chance, and the issue is scarce in all grades today.
The present coin is an attractive example of this key date. Wear shows only on the high points of the design, with all important detail unaffected. Much original luster and color remains, and some scattered abrasions are consistent with the grade.

Revised Edition by James L. Halperin, Mark R. Borckardt, Mark Van Winkle, Jon Amato, and Gregory J. Rohan, with special contributor David W. Akers

The Coinage of Augustus Saint-Gaudens is an issue-by-issue examination of these two artistically inspired series of gold coins. Each date and mintmark is reviewed with up-to-date information, much of which has never been previously published. The book is based on two extraordinary collections: The Phillip H. Morse collection and the Dr. and Mrs. Steven L. Duckor collection.
