    Satiny Uncirculated 1907 High Relief Twenty

    1907 $20 High Relief, Wire Rim MS62 NGC. A premium coin for the grade with a few minor field and rim marks, but really no one abrasion that deserves individual mention. Bright with satiny luster and a pinpoint strike, this is a very pleasing High Relief, and an example of what beauty, history, and a one year type can do for a coin. Each of the two varieties of the 1907 High Relief Saint-Gaudens (Wire Rim and Flat Rim) still commands, and always will command, a huge premium. Every collector of numismatic items dreams of owning one of these fabulous coins. As a result, demand always outstrips supply. This lovely example appears to the naked eye to grade substantially higher than the slab would indicate. Even after a thorough view with a glass, no mentionable problems can be seen. Perhaps the luster is slightly subdued, this possibly being the factor that could justify a grade this low.
