Description

1926-S Double Eagle, MS64
Once a Prime Rarity

1926-S $20 MS64 NGC. With a combined population in all grades of 1,458 coins at ANACS, NGC, and PCGS, the 1926-S ranks 17th out of 52 issues for total population. That was not always the case, as this issue was once considered a premier rarity in the business strike series of collectible Saint-Gaudens double eagles. The first edition of the Guide Book, dated 1947 and published in 1946, valued the 1926-S at $900. For comparison, the 1926-D was $1,100, the 1927-D was $550, and the 1921, 1927-S, and 1931-D issues were $750 each. Those were the highest priced pieces in that listing.
This near-Gem has delicate green and pink toning over its satiny yellow-gold luster with a few scattered marks to prevent a higher grade. This is a highly attractive and important example, with only 24 finer pieces certified by NGC (10/12).(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 26GF, PCGS# 9185)

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.
