1908 Twenty, MS65
1908 $20 Motto MS65 PCGS. President Theodore Roosevelt
opposed the inclusion of the motto IN GOD WE TRUST on our nation's
coins, and purposely instructed Augustus Saint-Gaudens to omit
those words on his new eagle and double eagle designs. However, a
large number of citizens disagreed, and pressured commerce to
restore the motto, which happened in 1908.
This representative of the With Motto design is a brilliant and highly lustrous Gem with splendid yellow surfaces and delicate green and rose overtones on each side. The surfaces are pristine with only trivial marks, as the grade suggests. Population: 60 in 65, 11 finer (6/12).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# BNAK, PCGS# 9147)
Weight: 33.44 grams
Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
