    1907 Flat Rim Twenty, MS64
    Total Absence of 'Finning' on the Obverse

    1907 $20 High Relief, Flat Rim, MS64 PCGS. CAC. The Mint's view that "finning," or what we know today as the Wire Rim, was never completely resolved. This particular piece shows resolution of the problem on the obverse with an almost complete absence of extruded metal. However, approximately two-thirds of the reverse still retains a wire rim. Nevertheless, this is an exceptional coin for the grade. The surfaces are bright and softly frosted with the usual layer of light reddish patina. The strike definition bears mention as it is completely brought up in all areas, even showing complete separation between UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and the upper reverse rim. There are no contact marks on either side that are worthy of individual mention. Terrific value for the collector.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 26F2, PCGS# 9136)

    Weight: 33.44 grams
