Lustrous, Sharply Defined MS63 1930-S Double Eagle, An Extremely Rare Issue in the Saint-Gaudens Series

1930-S $20 MS63 NGC. There do not appear to be any abrasions that would bar this frosty Double Eagle from a near-Gem grade. In addition to smooth features, both sides display an exactness of strike that confirms the 1930-S as one of the more carefully produced S-mint deliveries in this series. An interesting die scratch (as produced) is noted in the right obverse field, and there are several small, raised lumps within the last digit in the date. These features are diagnostic to most extant 1930-S double eagles. A heavily melted issue, the 1930-S is rarer than the 1929, 1931, 1931-D, and 1932 from the standpoint of total number of coins known. Population: 6 in 63, 6 finer (11/03).(#9191) (Registry values: P1, N28500) (NGC ID# 26GM, PCGS# 9191)

The Coinage of Augustus Saint-Gaudens as Illustrated by the Morse and Duckor Collections
Revised Edition by James L. Halperin, Mark R. Borckardt, Mark Van Winkle, Jon Amato, and Gregory J. Rohan, with special contributor David W. Akers

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.
