    1907 Saint-Gaudens Twenty, MS63+
    High Relief, Wire Rim

    1907 $20 High Relief, Wire Rim MS63+ PCGS. From a meager mintage of 12,367 examples, the 1907 High Relief double eagle has often been called America's most beautiful coin design. Like most examples of this issue, this piece shows a fin, or wire rim, around the circumference of the coin, caused by metal extruded between the collar and the die during the striking process. This feature was considered a serious flaw at the time of issue, as it was feared the coins would not stack properly. Today, collectors prize the Wire Rim twenties for the beauty of their three dimensional, sculptural design elements.

    This Plus-graded Select example exhibits the sharply detailed central design elements that are expected of this issue. The pleasing orange-gold surfaces are lightly marked and radiate satiny mint luster, with outstanding eye appeal.(Registry values: N4719)
