Description

    Important Select 1905 Double Eagle

    1905 $20 MS63 PCGS. Garrett and Guth note for this issue: "Most of the coins seen have been plucked from gold shipments that have returned to the United States in recent years. The average coin grades AU-58 to MS-61. Choice examples of the date are very rare, and none are known at the gem level." This Select example splits the difference; it is clearly a desirable coin on a higher tier than the more commonly seen AU58 or MS61 pieces, yet it is not at a stratospheric price point as is seen with the few known finer examples. A blush of rose color visits wheat and orange-gold surfaces that are immensely lustrous. Strongly struck with just a few abrasions, such as those at Liberty's brow and below her chin, that preclude an even finer designation. Population: 43 in 63, 9 finer (1/10).
