Gem 1926-S Double Eagle
Seldom Seen Above MS64

1926-S $20 MS65 PCGS. Just a fraction of the coins from this issue are believed to be extant from an original mintage of more than 2 million pieces, and the Mint State population dwindles rapidly above the Choice level. This Gem has a pleasing, nearly full strike, and displays exceptionally appealing medium golden-orange color. The glowing satiny luster is lovely as well, if not flashy, and helps to accent the exquisitely preserved features. Only the smallest abrasions can be seen with magnification. This is an uncommonly attractive and minimally abraded example of this mass-melted issue. Most certified 1926-S Saints fall into the MS62 to MS64 grade range, and specimens grading as high as the present example can be considered extremely scarce. Population: 30 in 65, 4 finer (6/12).
Ex: Central States Signature (Heritage, 5/2005), lot 9183; FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2012), lot 5116.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 26GF, PCGS# 9185)
