1921 $20 MS62 NGC. Despite a seemingly substantial ...
Both sides of this lustrous, frosty survivor are accented in delicate rose patina that is most evident in the reverse fields. A liberal amount of small contact marks are seen on the obverse, but are significantly less numerous on the reverse. The strike is typically bold and a few pinpoint areas of discoloration (perhaps from grease on the die) are located within the folds of Liberty's gown. There is a reverse die break (as struck, and not uncommon for the type) through the eagle's beak. Last year's FUN Sale featured a PCGS certified MS62 that fetched an impressive $62,100. A coin that would fit nicely into any advanced collection of certified U.S. gold. Population: 17 in 62, 8 finer (11/03).
From a Magnificent Collection of Double Eagles. (#9172) (Registry values: P1, N47000) (NGC ID# 26G2, PCGS# 9172)
