Only Nine Numerically Finer Coins at PCGS
Research conducted in the Mint records by Dr. Charles W. Green in the 1940s indicates that only 110 examples of the 1932 Saint-Gaudens double eagle were released through official channels before the fatal presidential order took effect. Few, if any, examples of the 1932 have been found in European banks or other foreign holdings. Fortunately, Philadelphia jeweler Izzy Switt, of 1933 double eagle fame, seems to have marketed a small hoard of 1931 and 1932 double eagles among East Coast dealers in the late 1930s and early 1940s, providing a small supply of high-grade coins for future collectors.
The present coin is an impressive Gem, with attractive rose-gold surfaces that show highlights of green at the peripheries. The design elements are well-detailed, with just a touch of softness on the central devices. Vibrant mint luster is evident on both sides, with abundant eye appeal. Population: 32 in 65 (1 in 65+), 9 finer (6/12).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 26GR, PCGS# 9194)
