    1907 High Relief, Wire Rim Double Eagle
    AU Details, Substantial Mint Luster

    1907 $20 High Relief, Wire Rim -- Damaged -- NGC Details. AU. High Relief twenties are one of the most, if not the most popular coin in American numismatics. At the time they were issued some slipped into circulation, some were carried as pocket pieces, and some found their way into the hands of noncollectors. Some sort of intentional damage was done to this piece. There are several deep marks in the left obverse field. The right field also has several, but those are more obscured by the rays. Where present, the wire rim is especially pronounced on each side. The coin does not appear to have spent long in circulation as there is substantial mint luster present on each side. In spite of the problems, this is a well-detailed coin for the price it will realize.
