Rare Choice AU 1927-S Double Eagle

1927-S $20 AU55 PCGS. Given its mintage of more than 3 million pieces, one would normally expect that the 1927-S would be readily available to today's collectors. Instead, it is a great rarity. Apparently, the typical 1927-S was not exported or used as bank reserves, and instead resided in Treasury vaults, before it was melted with its peers to line the vaults of Fort Knox with gold bars. Only a small number of 1927-S Double Eagles escaped Treasury holdings prior to the 1933 gold recall, and most of these are in costly Mint State grades. A few lightly circulated pieces are known, such as the present piece, which has essentially full mint luster despite a trace of wear on the eagle's breast and Liberty's knee. Clean surfaces and bright peach color only add to the eye appeal.(#9188) (Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 26GJ, PCGS# 9188)

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.

Morse collection and the Dr. and Mrs. Steven L. Duckor collection.
