One of the Great Prizes in the Series
Whether the 1931-D encountered is frosty or satiny, eye appeal is a constant when one sees an example. This coin has lovely mint frost that has an overlay of incredible reddish-golden color. The combination of luster and color undoubtedly explain the + designation from PCGS. The striking definition is strong except in two areas: Liberty's nose and the center of the eagle's breast. Abrasions are remarkably few for an MS63, the only one of note is a cluster to the right of the head of Liberty. Even though a hoard of 15-20 pieces entered the market more than 20 years ago, the 1931-D is one of the great prizes in the Saint-Gaudens series and one of the keys to the late-dates in the series.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 26GP, PCGS# 9193)
