1908-D Motto Twenty, Boldly Struck MS66

1908-D $20 Motto MS66 PCGS. CAC. The 1908-D Motto double eagles are today mostly found around the Select grade. Gems are rare. The present Premium Gem is one of only about two dozen such at PCGS, which has seen but three finer (2/13). The 1908-D Motto in the Duckor Collection was one of only three MS67 PCGS examples. David Akers wrote in the Duckor catalog that both the 1908-D No Motto and the 1908-D With Motto were elusive in any grade higher than MS63 until around 1983, even though the With Motto was a touch more available. The present Premium Gem Motto coin displays radiant luster over boldly struck surfaces that show a range of color from orange-gold to lilac. Marks are at an absolute minimum. An excellent coin for a type set.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 26F9, PCGS# 9148)
