Fabulous 1913 Gem Matte Proof Saint Gaudens Double Eagle

1913 $20 PR65 PCGS. Not since our offering of the Trompeter specimen have we been privileged to auction an elusive 1913 Matte Proof Saint Gaudens. As with any proof Double Eagle, proofs from this year are rare in the truest sense of the word, as can be easily ascertained by its miniscule mintage of 58 coins, which is second lowest in the series. The actual number of survivors can be reliably estimated to be between 25 and 35 coins, obviously a tiny number when compared to the numbers of collectors of U.S. gold.
The matte surface on this coin exhibits a brownish-khaki coloration and, even with the aid of magnification, the tiniest of surface flaws appear to be of Mint origin. Whether this magnificent specimen could possibly be deserving of an even higher rating is up to the potential buyer. Either way, the importance of this classic 20th century gold issue cannot be underestimated and its technical and aesthetic merits are equally sound. Population: 6 in 65, 1 finer (10/01). (NGC ID# BNLD, PCGS# 9210)
