Desirable 1909 Twenty, MS65

1909 $20 MS65 PCGS. Here is an elusive issue in the Saint-Gaudens series, known from overdate and normal date obverse dies. This 1909 twenty is one of the rare dates in the Saint-Gaudens series. In fact, it is believed that the Normal Date variety is slightly scarcer than the Overdate, although both are extremely rare in Gem MS65 or finer grades. Since 1993 we have offered 15 MS65 or finer examples of the 1909 Normal Date twenty, compared to 18 similarly graded examples of the 1909 over 8 Overdate double eagle. This frosty Gem has gorgeous green-gold luster with traces of pale orange toning. It is sharply defined with excellent eye appeal. Here is an important opportunity for the advanced collection. Population: 21 in 65, 7 finer (1/10).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 26FC, PCGS# 9150)

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.
