    1911-D Twenty Dollar Saint-Gaudens
    Top-Grade MS67

    1911-D $20 MS67 NGC. This is among the finest 1911-D double eagles certified, without so much as a Plus-graded piece finer at NGC (7/20). The 1911-D is generally plentiful in lower grades, though. Roger Burdette, in Saint-Gaudens Double Eagles, writes that a significant number of the Mint State pieces known today were repatriated after 1972 from Central America. Most of these coins grade on the low end of the scale today because of bagmarks.

    High-end 1911-D twenties such as the present coin are important rarities. We have seen a Superb Gem on only 22 previous occasions, including duplicate appearances of some coins. The last MS67 example that we handled was in the recent FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2020), which realized $52,800. This NGC example is a truly important offering for the Registry collector. Sharply defined motifs complement rich orange-gold luster, and neither side has mentionable abrasions. The eye appeal is simply outstanding. Census: 40 in 67 (1 in 67 ), 0 finer (7/20).
