Description:
Near-Gem 1926-D Melt Rarity Twenty
From the Bella Collection
1926-D $20 MS64 PCGS Secure. Ex: Bella. The Bella Collection of Saint-Gaudens double eagles, in both one-per-date and by-issue forms, has taken over Registry Set collecting on both sides of the NGC/PCGS divide. This 1926-D double eagle, graded MS64 by PCGS, recently was transitioned out of the collection in favor of an MS65 example, an already impressive coin being replaced by one even more extraordinary. Yellow-to-orange luster is the rule on this near-Gem with an apricot-wheat shade the midpoint. The strike is a trifle soft on Liberty's extremities, but the reverse offers crisp detail, and aside from a handful of shallow cuts, there are surprisingly few abrasions. A fantastic example of the famous melt rarity. Population: 21 in 64 (1 in 64+), 5 finer (6/12).
Ex: Central States Signature (Heritage, 4/2012), lot 5384.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 26GE, PCGS# 9184)

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.
