1929 $20 MS64 PCGS....
"A very scarce issue that a few years ago was considered to be a major rarity. However, many hundreds of coins now have sneaked into the market, without fanfare, and now nearly 1,000 have been certified--and, of course, many coins have not been. For the first time in modern numismatic history the 1929 is readily available and somewhat affordable (but hardly inexpensive)."
While it is difficult to ascertain exactly what proportion of certified-to-uncertified coins exists for the issue, his assertions about the certified population have proven incorrect. As of (6/10), there are just over 300 examples of the date in the combined certified population--a far cry from the figure given six years before, and even the smaller figure does not account for resubmissions.
In addition, while a major numismatic auction may feature multiple representatives of the date, collectors recognize ownership of an example as the mark of a sophisticated collector. This near-Gem offers stylish eye appeal, including lustrous yellow-gold surfaces that turn orange when tilted to the light. A handful of ticks are noted on the peripheral reverse, but the obverse is clean aside from a single blemish at Liberty's midsection.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 26GL, PCGS# 9190)
