Description

Lightly Worn 1921 Double Eagle Rarity

1921 $20 AU 55 PCGS. This heavily melted P-mint issue ranks behind only the 1907 Extremely High Relief, 1927-D, and 1933 in terms of overall rarity among Saint-Gaudens double eagles. Given the undeniable condition rarity of this issue, the near-Mint specimen that we highlight here should be the object of intense bidder competition when it appears at auction. Intermingled swirls of champagne and olive-gold coloration overlay both sides and considerable luster remains despite light rub on the highest points. There are no individually distracting abrasions on either side. Sharply struck and appealing for the circulated grade. (NGC ID# 26G2, PCGS# 9172)

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.
