1927-S $20 MS66 PCGS. The 1927-S double eagle stands out as one of the rarest and best-known issues of the Saint-Gaudens se...
The presently-offered Premium Gem displays peach-gold patina that is accompanied on the obverse by tinges of light tan, and on the reverse by subtle yellow-green undertones and occasional splashes of orange color. Attractive luster radiates from both faces, and the motifs are well impressed. The Capitol building, which is typically weak on this issue, exhibits nice detail in most of the panes. Liberty's facial features, the fingers on both hands, the toes, and the eagle's plumage are all sharp. A solitary light copper spot in the lower left obverse field and a small mark in the middle of Liberty's outstretched left arm may help in the coin's pedigree. This outstanding piece is sure to generate spirited bidding among aficionados of rare-date Saint-Gaudens coinage, and clearly one of the highlights among the double eagles of the Kutasi Collection. Population: 2 in 66, 1 finer (11/06).
