1924-S Double Eagle, Sharply Struck MS64
Only Three Finer at PCGS

1924-S $20 MS64 PCGS. CAC. The original mintage of the 1924-S double eagle (nearly 3 million pieces) was largely melted in the 1930s. Fortunately for collectors, a thousand or so survived in Paris and Swiss banks. PCGS has graded 475 examples, mostly in the MS62 to MS64 range. Gem specimens are rare, making the present near-Gem the finest that is likely to be encountered by most collectors. Apricot-gold surfaces are imbued with hints of light green and display pleasing luster. The design elements are sharply struck throughout. A few minor grazes prevent Gem classification. Both sides exude great eye appeal. PCGS has seen a mere 3 pieces finer (11/13).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 26G9, PCGS# 9179)
