Description

Near-Gem 1926-S Double Eagle
Excellent Eye Appeal

1926-S $20 MS64 PCGS. CAC. The 1926-S Saint-Gaudens twenty is a former great rarity in the series, now more available due to repatriations of overseas hoards. The issue remains quite popular, however, and Gems or finer coins are seldom seen. This near-Gem displays excellent luster radiating from frosty orange-red surfaces that are well-struck. The eye appeal is top-notch, despite the scattered small marks on Liberty's face, breast, and torso that account for the grade. PCGS has seen only 24 submissions numerically finer (2/13).(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.
