1924-S $20 MS64 PCGS....
Condition Rarity, Three Finer at PCGS
"In the past 60 years, the 1924-S has dropped a very long way from once being considered not only the rarest issue of the Saint-Gaudens series, but also the rarest of the entire denomination, surpassing the 1856-O, 1870-CC and the famous proof-only rarities of the 1880s. It was also considered more rare than the 1907 MCMVII Extremely High Relief, the 1927-D and the 1933, all of which are multi-million dollar coins today."
The 1924-S is still scarce in the near-Gem grade, and anything finer is a rarity; the Duckor Collection example was a Gem PCGS example -- one of two in that grade, with a single MS67 finer. This near-Gem is one of several dozen submissions in this grade. The surfaces show a well-detailed strike over peach-gold surfaces with accents of deeper reddish-orange near the centers. A scattering of small marks on Liberty's legs and elsewhere is in concert with the grade. The eye appeal is excellent.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 26G9, PCGS# 9179)
