    Lovely 1910 Saint-Gaudens Twenty, PR63

    1910 $20 PR63 PCGS. For the type collector who desires a single proof Saint-Gaudens double eagle, either the 1909 or 1910 are ideal candidates. Those two dates are found with the so-called Roman Finish, with a soft, satiny appearance. They have the closest appearance to a brilliant proof gold coin, and they were the most popular with contemporary collectors. In 1908, the dark and dull matte finish was introduced and proved unpopular with collectors who then stayed away in 1909 when the Mint introduced the Roman or Satin Finish gold proofs. Those proved more popular with collectors, who returned to buy similar pieces in 1910. The mintage more than doubled with 167 proofs struck in 1910, by far the highest annual production of proof Saint-Gaudens double eagles. Of course, the high mintage meant that many more survived for collectors today.
    The present specimen is a lovely proof with brilliant lemon-yellow surfaces, bold design features, and slightly reflective fields. Some minor surface marks appear on both sides, and they are more noticeable on the reverse. An extraordinarily attractive proof, this double eagle should see considerable bidding activity when it crosses the auction block. Interest will be shown by type collectors and advanced specialists alike. Furthermore, the combination of an attractive piece and a modest technical grade should provide an excellent value for the winning bidder.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 26GX, PCGS# 9207)
