Description

Uncirculated 1931-D Twenty Dollar from the Boys Town Sale

1931-D $20 MS 62 PCGS. 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. There are few abrasions, but the obverse field does reveal a sizeable scrape that precludes a Select designation. Sharply struck, as expected, this coin would form the centerpiece of even the most advanced double eagle collection.
Ex: Boys Town Sale (Superior, 5/90), lot 5915, where it realized $18,700.
From the Conrad Sommers Collection. (NGC ID# 26GP, PCGS# 9193)
