Description:

1924-S Double Eagle, MS64
Most Examples Melted
1924-S $20 MS64 PCGS. In the early coin-collecting going after the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Administration, picking the true rarities from among recent double eagle issues was a mystery. Which dates had been all but destroyed? Which were waiting in Central American or European banks, ready to be unleashed on collectors when the time was right? At one point the 1924-S was thought to be a top-tier rarity, but time has settled it into a mass-melted yet available-for-a-price issue ... except in grades finer than the MS64 example offered here, where PCGS has certified just three such coins (8/13). Light yellow-gold surfaces are softly lustrous with scattered marks but few significant abrasions.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 26G9, PCGS# 9179)
