    Unc Details 1907 High Relief
    A Relatively Affordable Example

    1907 $20 High Relief, Wire Rim -- Rim Damage, Reverse Scratches -- NGC Details. Unc. It is not uncommon to see a partial wire rim around either official "Flat Rim" or "Wire Rim" High Reliefs. This piece shows damage in some areas where the wire rim appears, in the form of many small dents and dings in the wire rim. In other areas the rim appears to have been filed away, particularly but not limited to the upper reverse around STATES, where scraping is obvious. Some pinscratching also appears near the lower reverse, below the eagle's claws and near the sun. The many small impairments still fail to dampen the incredible appeal these coins possess, but they may provide an affordable entry point for some fortunate bidder. On a more macro level, this piece remains a gorgeous coin.
