Description:
1907 Proof High Relief, Flat Rim Variant
1907 $20 High Relief, Flat Rim -- Reverse Improperly Cleaned -- NGC Details. Proof. The controversial proof strikings of the 1907 High Relief all share common characteristics as laid out by Walter Breen 34 years ago in his Proof Encyclopedia:

"--Numerous, raised die-polishing lines on both sides. These appear in a random, swirling pattern. While also evident on currency strikes, these are particularly bold on Proofs.

"--Uniformly satiny surfaces, without any of the radial flowlines that produce conventional Mint luster."


Both sides of this piece are well-matched in appearance, surprising in light of the slight hairlining on the reverse. The NGC insert states the coin is a Flat Rim; however, we see a noticeable "fin" or wire rim on each side. It is more apparent on the obverse than the reverse, and it should be noted that neither Wire Rim or Flat Rim twenties are absolute in their lack of or presence of a wire rim. The striking details are bold, as one would expect from a proof. The only marks of note are a small X in the field above the eagle's head, and a couple of shallow scrapes in the vicinity of the sun on the reverse. Neither of these surface defects are detracting to the unaided eye. This is an opportunity to acquire a proof High Relief with minimal problems and maximum eye appeal. (PCGS# 9132)
