Description

1907 Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle, PR64
High Relief, Wire Rim

1907 $20 High Relief PR64 NGC. The proof issues of 1907 are controversial, with some numismatists believing all High Reliefs should be considered proofs and others vehemently opposed to classifying any examples as proofs. Even the grading services are split on this issue, with PCGS refusing to certify High Relief coins as proofs, while NGC recognizes certain specimens as legitimate proof examples. Characteristics such as an extremely sharp strike and swirling die polish lines in the fields are among the diagnostic features used by NGC to certify proofs. No records were kept of the number of proof examples struck in 1907, but the number must have been quite small.
The present coin shows the full strike and fine swirling die polish lines diagnostic of proofs of this date. The surfaces are silky smooth, with satiny luster, and attractive reddish color. A couple of tiny rim bumps on the reverse account for the grade, as the surfaces show minimal signs of contact, suggestive of a Gem designation. Census: 89 in 64, 71 finer (11/09). (NGC ID# 28AX, PCGS# 9132)
