    1907 High Relief Double Eagle, AU55
    Collectible Wire Rim Example

    1907 $20 High Relief, Wire Rim AU55 PCGS Secure. Barely a trace of friction is evident on this Choice AU High Relief double eagle, and the design elements are boldly defined. Still-lustrous yellow-gold surfaces show no bothersome abrasions. In the past, coins of this quality have, in some cases, been passed off as Uncirculated due to the amount of luster and the sharpness of the design.

    High Relief double eagles in attractive AU condition are highly sought-after, being in a minority of the survivorship. This issue, although struck for circulation, was widely admired for its artistic excellence at the time of coinage and few examples were actually used in commerce. As many as half of the pieces struck survive today, mostly in Mint State grades. A pleasing AU coin such as this is scarce by comparison, and its more affordable price point only increases collector interest.(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 26F2, PCGS# 9135)

    Weight: 33.44 grams
