Description:
Lovely PR64 MCMVII High Relief, Wire Rim
1907 $20 High Relief, Wire Rim PR64 NGC. The proof status of the MCMVII High Reliefs is a point of disagreement between NGC and PCGS, with only NGC certifying proofs. Dr. Robert Loewinger and NGC use the extremely sharp strike and swirling die polish lines in the fields to be among the chief determinants for proofs, and those criteria are on rich and abundant display on the present near-Gem. The reddish tinted surfaces are satiny, as usual, and somewhat mattelike in appearance, with the die polish particularly noticeable in the obverse fields. The lack of significant contact noted throughout makes this piece seem high-end for the assigned grade. A lovely example of a coin generally considered to be the United States' most beautiful numismatic creation. (PCGS# 9132)
