    Rich 1907 High Relief, Flat Rim Double Eagle, MS62

    1907 $20 High Relief, Flat Rim MS62 PCGS. A thin "fin," or so-called Wire Rim that characterized the earlier High Relief double eagles of 1907, was perceived by mint officials to be a striking deficiency. According to gold specialist Roger Burdette, the milling procedure and planchet size for the double eagle blanks were slightly modified in mid-December to correct this small flaw. The result was the so-called Flat Rim. It is noteworthy that Wire Rim pieces do not necessarily have a complete wire rim, and conversely Flat Rim pieces might show traces of a localized wire rim.
    Rich yellow-gold surfaces on this MS62 Flat Rim specimen exhibit the characteristic bold relief, where the Liberty and eagle motifs appear in stark contrast to the fields. Sharp definition is especially visible on the fingers of both hands, Liberty's face and toes, and the eagle's plumage. Some minute contact marks and luster grazes are noted, particularly on the obverse.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 26F2, PCGS# 9136)
