Near Gem 1909 twenties can be found with a degree of effort, but Gems are quite challenging. NGC and PCGS have certified fewer than 30 MS65 examples and a mere 10 Premium Gems. Neither service has graded any '09s higher.
This MS66 offering displays satiny surfaces that possess excellent luster. Yellow-gold coloration with hints of light green adorns both sides and a decisive strike delivers sharp definition to the design features. The panes of the Capitol building are virtually complete, as are Liberty's fingers, facial features, and toes, the leaves on the olive branch, and the eagle's plumage. Impeccable preservation rounds out this coin's magnificent eye appeal. Some unobtrusive marks on the lower middle parts of obverse rays 5, 6, and 7 (counting from left to right) are mentioned solely for the purpose of identifying the coin, as is a small mark on the upper-left part of the sun. Census: 4 in 66, 0 finer (6/09).(Registry values: N10218) (NGC ID# 26FB, PCGS# 9150)
