Description:
Magnificent Premium Gem 1927-S Twenty
1927-S $20 MS66 NGC. The higher Mint State grades of the 1927-S are quite rare. NGC and PCGS, for example, have certified a total of six '27-S examples in MS66, and a mere three coins grade finer 10/05). Indeed, only four specimens grading MS66 have made auction appearances at major sales in the past ten or so years, and one piece grades higher.
The coin offered in this lot possesses a wonderful mix of apricot and yellow-gold patination, and exhibits vibrant luster. The design elements are exceptionally well struck, though the Capitol reveals minor softness. It is devoid of significant marks, save for an inoffensive shallow linear abrasion on Liberty's chest. Interestingly though, a mint made "scrape" on the sun is noted (we have recently seen another 1927-S twenty with the same feature, leading one to believe that the two coins in question were struck from the same reverse die within a relatively short period of time. Perhaps the parent die was over polished in this area). This is a magnificent specimen that is sure to generate spirited bidding. Population: 4 in 66, 2 finer (10/05).

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.
