    Appealing Gem 1908 Motto Double Eagle

    1908 $20 Motto MS65 PCGS. Millions of No Motto double eagles were struck at Philadelphia in 1908, but far fewer of their Motto counterparts were produced in the same year. Enough pieces exist to satisfy demand in circulated and lesser Mint State grades, but Garrett and Guth caution that "These coins are a considerable rarity in gem grades," and the population data bear this out. The present Gem is crisply detailed with gorgeous wheat-gold luster. Its preservation and eye appeal are equally impressive. PCGS has graded 40 examples at the MS65 level and a mere 10 finer (6/09).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# BNAK, PCGS# 9147)

    The Coinage of Augustus Saint-Gaudens as Illustrated by the Morse and Duckor Collections
    Revised Edition by James L. Halperin, Mark R. Borckardt, Mark Van Winkle, Jon Amato, and Gregory J. Rohan, with special contributor David W. Akers

    The Coinage of Augustus Saint-Gaudens is an issue-by-issue examination of these two artistically inspired series of gold coins. Each date and mintmark is reviewed with up-to-date information, much of which has never been previously published. The book is based on two extraordinary collections: The Phillip H. Morse collection and the Dr. and Mrs. Steven L. Duckor collection.
