    1907 High Relief Twenty, AU58
    Wire Rim Variant

    1907 $20 High Relief, Wire Rim AU58 PCGS Secure. The wire rims on each side of this High Relief double eagle indicate that it is an early strike before the press was adjusted to eliminate the space between the collar and the die faces. When the press cycled to strike a blank, the space accepted a small amount of metal and created the wire rim. Once adjusted to eliminate the void, later strikes had a more or less flat rim that was deemed more acceptable. While this example has a trace of high-point wear, the satiny yellow-gold surfaces retain nearly full luster.
