Description:
1927-S Double Eagle, AU55
Challenging Date, Seldom Offered
1927-S $20 AU55 NGC. Millions were minted (3.1 million, actually) but precious few survive, the result of the infamous gold recall of the 1930s in which nearly the entire 1927-S double eagle mintage was melted. Although understandably in the shadow of its branch mint counterpart, the ultra-rare 1927-D twenty, the 1927-S date is rare as well. Possibly fewer than 250 pieces survive in all grades.

This appealing example is one of the most original-looking About Uncirculated representatives that can be found. The obverse shows apricot-gold toning with olive-green accents. Soft luster remains over much of the well-detailed surface. The reverse is nearly untoned and radiant, with lime-green highlights amid the strong remaining luster. Some abrasions exist as expected for the Choice About Uncirculated grade -- mostly on the obverse.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 26GJ, PCGS# 9188)

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.
