1921 $20 MS61 NGC....
Saint-Gaudens Series Key
Despite the appearance of multiple key-date coins from many series in our sales, this date is not among them. Virtually every Heritage Signature sale has numerous examples of the 1856 Flying Eagle and 1909-S V.D.B. cents, the 1916 Standing Liberty quarter, the 1893-S dollar, the 1911-D quarter eagle, and other rarities.
Look through the present sale for those dates and others, and almost certainly multiple examples of each will be found. However, the 1921 double eagle is too rare to fit the category of multiple opportunities. A few Mint State examples have appeared numerous times in different Heritage Signature sales. But as best we can determine from our Permanent Auction Archives, we have offered only about a dozen different Mint State examples in the last 15 years, some more than once--an average of less than one unique coin per year.
This example is a brilliant, frosty, and lustrous representative with a few light surface marks on each side. All of the design elements on each side are nicely detailed. Light yellow-gold color is accented by specks of toning. The overall eye appeal is excellent, despite the grade-limiting marks. Census: 16 in 61, 23 finer (8/09).
