1927-S $20 MS62 PCGS....
Interestingly for an issue that saw little circulation, the 1927-S appears frequently in worn grades, as shown by the NGC Census Report and the PCGS Population Report. In fact, the mean grade for the combined certified population is a mere 59.9, which puts virtually any Mint State coin, including the present MS62 piece, ahead of the curve.
Deep sun-gold shadings prevail on this desirable and satiny 1927-S twenty, though a hint of orange is present on the reverse. It is well struck overall, though the edges show a degree of the usual beveling and the peripheral stars are a trifle soft. A number of wispy abrasions are present in the fields and a handful of small digs appear on the central devices, yet the overall eye appeal is far better than the MS62 grade might suggest. An excellent candidate for most double eagle cabinets, even one that has mainly Select or better pieces. Population: 49 in 62, 34 finer (11/09).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 26GJ, PCGS# 9188)
