1909 Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle
The devices are sharply struck throughout, and the variegated peach and orange-gold coloration is also imbued with tinges of pale green. Each side is awash in softly frosted luster. Rarely are these large gold coins found with such minimally marked surfaces. This specimen is individually identifiable by three minuscule abrasions in the right obverse field, below Liberty's arm. Other than a nick in the lower left obverse field, and slight stacking friction on the upper half of the sun, no other potential pedigree markers are observed on either side. The combined NGC and PCGS population figures show a total of 10 pieces graded at MS66 (some of these are likely resubmissions), and, significantly, none are certified any finer at either service (3/09).(Registry values: N10218) (NGC ID# 26FB, PCGS# 9150)
