Description:
Choice Mint State 1906-S Double Eagle
1906-S $20 MS64 PCGS. San Franciscans to this day recall 1906 as the year of the great earthquake and fire. The mint at Fifth and Mission Streets, the "Granite Lady," was virtually the only structure that survived the disaster intact, and it served multiple duties in those days as a headquarters for relief and rescue efforts and as a coiner of money. One can only speculate whether this piece, born in San Francisco during the same year, bore witness to the quake, but if it did, it emerged virtually unscathed, as over 100 years later it retains full luster over its soft, attractive, peach-gold surfaces. Numismatists are often interested in coins that recall both a particular time and place. Those with a connection to Northern California might just find this piece to their liking. Population: 192 in 64, 3 finer (11/06).
