Description:
Rare 1931-D Twenty, MS63 NGC
1931-D $20 MS63 NGC. The 1931-D Double Eagle began as a low mintage (106,500 pieces) issue. Unfortunately for budget-minded collectors, the majority of these coins were retained in the Denver Mint and then melted during the gold recall of the Great Depression. Today, this issue is one of the premier rarities in the Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle series, an honor that it shares with such other dates as the 1920-S, 1921, 1927-D, 1927-S, 1929, 1930-S, 1931, 1932, and, of course, the unobtainable 1933. This is a relatively nice coin for the grade with a frosty, golden-rose appearance. Some subtle green-gold color circles the borders on each side. There are few abrasions, several on Liberty's figure preclude a Choice designation. Sharply struck, as expected, this coin would form the centerpiece of even the most advanced Double Eagle collection.(#9193) (Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 26GP, PCGS# 9193)

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.
