Description:
Choice 1924-S Double Eagle
Only Three Numerically Finer at PCGS
1924-S $20 MS64 PCGS Secure. The 1924-S Saint-Gaudens double eagle was considered the rarest coin of the series in the 1940s. B. Max Mehl and Abe Kosoff both claimed to have offered the 1924-S for the first time, Kosoff in his 1947 ANA auction and Mehl in his Dr. Charles W. Green catalog in 1949. Actually, both dealers were wrong, as the 1924-S appeared in lot 369 of Sale 397 (Morgenthau, 4/1939). The issue later surfaced in some European holdings, but it is still a better date today.

This impressive Choice example is well-detailed and lustrous, with yellow and rose-gold surfaces that show only minor signs of contact. The 1924-S is a scarce issue in MS64, and PCGS has graded only three numerically finer examples (3/13).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 26G9, PCGS# 9179)
