    Flashy 1907 High Relief Wire Rim Double Eagle, MS66 PCGS

    1907 $20 High Relief, Wire Rim MS66 PCGS. Fewer than 90 1907 High Relief Wire Rim specimens have been certified at the Premium Gem level by PCGS and NGC combined, with less than 30 pieces graded higher (9/05). Moreover, a total of 16 coins grading MS66 have made auction appearances over the past 10 to 15 years.
    One of the premier coins ever conceived for circulation, the High Relief double eagle is simply a delight to own. The devices are deeply engraved into the dies, so the coins struck have a definite three-dimensional appearance. Liberty appears to be walking right off the coin, and the eagle looks as though it's just flying by. Evidence of more than one blow from the dies is especially prominent on Liberty's hair and on the branch held in her left hand. The surfaces display yellow-gold color, and are well preserved. A minute mark below the T in LIBERTY might be used to identify the piece. Population: 61 in 66, 19 finer (9/05).
    From The Phillip H. Morse Collection of Saint-Gaudens Coinage.(#9135)(Registry values: N10218) (NGC ID# 26F2, PCGS# 9135)

    The Coinage of Augustus Saint-Gaudens as Illustrated by the Morse and Duckor Collections
    Revised Edition by James L. Halperin, Mark R. Borckardt, Mark Van Winkle, Jon Amato, and Gregory J. Rohan, with special contributor David W. Akers

    The Coinage of Augustus Saint-Gaudens is an issue-by-issue examination of these two artistically inspired series of gold coins. Each date and mintmark is reviewed with up-to-date information, much of which has never been previously published. The book is based on two extraordinary collections: The Phillip H. Morse collection and the Dr. and Mrs. Steven L. Duckor collection.
