In 1929 there were almost 1.8 million double eagles produced, but few were sent to Europe as in previous years. The coins held in this country were melted in the 1930s, and the only sizable hoard of this date was a group of 40 coins that Jeff Garrett discovered in England in 1984. Today, fewer than 300 pieces have been certified in all grades, and while this hoard of 40 coins may have increased the overall availability of the 1929 it has not made this date significantly more accessible (or affordable) in the better grades of Uncirculated.
This coin is an exceptionally attractive near-Gem 1929 twenty. The surfaces show the usual rich mint frost with an overlay of reddish-orange patina and lilac accents in the center. While alloy spots are often seen on this issue, this particular coin shows none on either side. The striking details are strongly brought up on both obverse and reverse, and there are no singularly mentionable abrasions on this memorable, late-date twenty.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 26GL, PCGS# 9190)
