    Magnificent 1909 Superb Gem Proof Double Eagle

    1909 $20 PR67 PCGS. The finish on the 1909 double eagle proofs was of the satin type, and has a brighter appearance than the earlier matte or "sandblast" proofs of 1908, and the individual surface granules also show a finer texture. Similarly, unlike the varying shades of olive or mustard brown or gold on the 1908s, the 1909 exhibits yellow-gold coloration. All of these attributes are characteristic of the Superb Gem Proof we offer in this lot. Likewise, the design elements are crisply impressed, with no areas displaying hints of weakness. The surfaces on both obverse and reverse are virtually pristine, and display no noticeable abrasions or copper spots. It is unlikely that one would come across a coin that possesses the tremendous eye appeal that is apparent on this specimen. Population: 2 in 67, none finer (9/05).
    From The Phillip H. Morse Collection of Saint-Gaudens Coinage.(#9206)(Registry values: N10218) (NGC ID# 26GW, PCGS# 9206)
