1908-S Twenty, Choice AU
1908-S $20 AU55 NGC. At first glance, this 1908-S double
eagle has the appearance of a Mint State coin. However, close
inspection reveals slight rub on the high points of the design
elements. The dazzling luster in the fields remains undisturbed on
this orange-gold beauty. Boasting the lowest mintage of any
Saint-Gaudens twenty, except the High Relief issues, the 1908-S is
a challenge to locate in high grade. NGC has certified 80 examples
in AU55 (9/12).
