    1926 Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle, MS67
    Tied for Finest at PCGS

    1926 $20 MS67 PCGS. From a mintage of less than a million pieces, the 1926 Saint-Gaudens double eagle is surprisingly easy to locate, in absolute terms, but it is still underrated compared to the 1924, 1927, and 1928 issues. The 1926 becomes quite scarce at the MS66 grade level, however, and finer coins are prime condition rarities.

    The coin offered here is a magnificent Superb Gem, with sharply detailed design elements throughout and radiant frosty mint luster on both sides. The impeccably preserved yellow and orange-gold surfaces augment the incredible visual appeal. This coin should find a home in the finest collection or Registry Set. Population: 5 in 67, 0 finer (11/15).(Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 26GD, PCGS# 9183)

    Weight: 33.44 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
