    Awe-Inspiring High Relief Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle, An MS66 NGC Representative of the Flat Rim Variant

    1907 $20 High Relief, Flat Rim MS66 NGC. This is one of the most beautiful High Relief Double Eagles that we have ever offered. Add to this the fact that the Flat Rim is (slightly) rarer than the Wire Rim and one should have little trouble sharing in our excitement over the presence of this lot. Bright with a pristine satin sheen, the pale orange tinged surfaces display dominant green-gold color. The full, needle sharp strike is exceptional even by the standards of the issue, and the eye appeal benefits even further by a noteworthy lack of distracting blemishes. A tiny nick on the inside of Liberty's left (facing) thigh is the only pedigree marker we can find. (NGC ID# 26F2, PCGS# 9136)

    Weight: 33.44 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
