Description

1908-S Twenty, Choice AU
Lustrous Example of This Low-Mintage Issue

1908-S $20 AU55 NGC. At first glance, this 1908-S double eagle has the appearance of a Mint State coin. However, close inspection reveals slight rub on the high points of the design elements. The dazzling luster in the fields remains undisturbed on this orange-gold beauty. Boasting the lowest mintage of any Saint-Gaudens twenty, except the High Relief issues, the 1908-S is a challenge to locate in high grade. NGC has certified 80 examples in AU55 (9/12).
Ex: Summer FUN Signature (Heritage, 7/2007), lot 3153.
From The Dr. Robert S. Wilson Collection.(Registry values: N1793) (NGC ID# 26FA, PCGS# 9149)

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.
