Important 1904 Double Eagle, Proof 64 NGC

1904 $20 PR64 NGC. When one thinks of 1904 Twenties, it is the very common business strikes that come to mind. However, proofs are very rare and seldom seen. Of the 98 pieces struck, Akers believes that perhaps 30-35 exist today in all grades. This is an intriguing piece. Not only is it a beautiful piece of proof gold, it also shows a remarkable contrast between the fields and devices, particularly on the obverse. We say this is remarkable because beginning in 1901 the mint shifted to a "no contrast" method of proofing and very few post-1901 coins show any frost on the devices. The fields have a good depth of reflectivity and there are only the slightest hairlines visible when the coin is closely examined. A little hazy patina is seen on each side. Population: 4 in 64, 1 finer (10/04).(#9120) (Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 26ES, PCGS# 9120)
