1932 $20 MS64 PCGS....
Although a year and four months have intervened since that passage was written, unsurprisingly there are still no MS67 examples of the 1932 at either service (8/09). The certified populations at both NGC and PCGS are about equally divided between the numbers of MS64 coins, versus the total number in MS65 and MS66: NGC has certified 21 MS64s, with 26 finer (finest four MS66 Star pieces), while PCGS has certified 25 MS64s, with 35 finer (finest seven MS66s). It is certain that those numbers include duplicates.
The surfaces of this lovely near-Gem reveal a few scattered marks on the high points of Liberty's legs and torso that seemingly account for the grade. Radiant luster is abundant throughout the orange-orange surfaces, which deepen on the reverse to a couple of reddish-orange areas. A small dark toning spot is noted near the reverse rim at 8 o'clock. An eye-appealing and well-struck piece. Population: 25 in 64, 35 finer (8/09).
