1932 $20 MS64 PCGS. This is the final collectible issue of the Saint-Gaudens double eagle series. Only a single 1933 double...
Nearly every surviving example of this date is Mint State, and the finest of these is an example that resides in the Smithsonian Institution, considered to be a Superb Gem by those who have seen it. To date, 122 examples of this issue have been certified by PCGS and NGC, and the average grade of those coins is MS64 (specifically 64.18), meaning that this coin is an "average" example. There has never been a circulated example of this date graded by either of these two grading services.
The example that we are now offering is a remarkable near-Gem with frosty luster on both sides. It has fully brilliant and splendid yellow-gold surfaces with a hint of pale rose color. The reverse has a small dark spot near the border at 8 o'clock. This might serve as a convenient pedigree marker for the interested student. Most of the design elements are nicely brought up, with only a few indications of weakness, including Liberty's head and the eagle's lower feathers. Although a few abrasions are hidden within the devices, the surfaces are relatively mark-free, and the fields are exceptionally clean. This date appears for sale infrequently, thus the present opportunity should be considered carefully. Population: 23 in 64, 22 finer (7/06).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 26GR, PCGS# 9194)
