Description

1927-S Double Eagle, MS62
Above-Average Strike

1927-S $20 MS62 PCGS. Most of the mintage exceeding 3.1 million pieces was destroyed in the 1930s meltings. PCGS and NGC have graded a mere 265 coins, most of which are in the lower range of Mint State. The honey-gold surfaces of this MS62 example exhibits an above-average strike on what is typically a somewhat weakly struck coin. Except for the usual softness in the LI of LIBERTY, the remaining letters are bold. Liberty's facial features and most of the fingers are strong, and the panes and pillars of the Capitol building, while not fully struck, display considerable detail. Scattered light marks are within the parameters of the grade designation. Population: 40 in 62 (1 in 62+), 41 finer (6/14).
From The Christopher Bently Nob Hill Collection.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 26GJ, PCGS# 9188)
