    1907 High Relief Double Eagle, MS63+
    High Extruded Rim Around Part of the Obverse

    1907 $20 High Relief, Wire Rim MS63+ PCGS. When Augustus Saint-Gaudens produced his magnificent design for the High Relief twenty dollar, Neoclassicism had long since been abandoned in most artistic circles, yet it remained on U.S. coinage. That would change during the Renaissance period for coin designs that lasted until 1921. However, a curious paradox exists with Saint-Gaudens' design for the double eagle. It is both forward-looking as well as grounded in Classical sculpture and the high-relief coinage of the ancient Greeks. This is a fully detailed example of his Classically inspired design. The wire rim is nearly complete around both sides with an especially pronounced high rim on the obverse between 12 and 4 o'clock. A few light contact marks are present, but none are worthy of individual mention. Just the slightest hint of reddish patina is present on each side.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 26F2, PCGS# 9135)
