Exceptional 1909 "Roman Gold" PR66 Double Eagle

1909 $20 PR66 NGC. Only 67 proof double eagles were officially struck in 1909. All, of course, were of the new, brighter "Roman Gold" finish. In 1981 David Akers estimated that no more than 20-25 pieces were known. However, we believe that the number of survivors is somewhat higher with somewhere between 30 and 40 proofs extant today. This is a magnificent proof striking that shows no obvious "shiny spots." Outstanding striking details are evident on each side, as only seen on proofs. The surfaces display an intermingling of subtle orange-gold with pale lilac. Essentially perfect surfaces, and a significant offering of this two-year proofing type.
From The Phillip H. Morse Collection of Saint-Gaudens Coinage.(#9206)(Registry values: N10218) (NGC ID# 26GW, PCGS# 9206)

The Coinage of Augustus Saint-Gaudens as Illustrated by the Morse and Duckor Collections
Revised Edition by James L. Halperin, Mark R. Borckardt, Mark Van Winkle, Jon Amato, and Gregory J. Rohan, with special contributor David W. Akers

The Coinage of Augustus Saint-Gaudens is an issue-by-issue examination of these two artistically inspired series of gold coins. Each date and mintmark is reviewed with up-to-date information, much of which has never been previously published. The book is based on two extraordinary collections: The Phillip H. Morse collection and the Dr. and Mrs. Steven L. Duckor collection.
