    1912 Saint-Gaudens Twenty, MS65
    Only Three Numerically Finer Coins at NGC

    1912 $20 MS65 NGC. The 1912 Saint-Gaudens double eagle claims a mintage of just 149,750 pieces, and no double eagles were produced at the branch mints that year. Accordingly, the date is scarce-to-rare in all grades today and virtually unobtainable above the MS65 level.

    The present coin is a delightful Gem that exhibits sharply detailed design elements and well-preserved peach-gold surfaces with vibrant frosty mint luster. A few hints of rose and lilac enhance the considerable visual appeal and close inspection reveals no mentionable distractions. Census: 17 in 65 (1 in 65+), 3 finer (6/13).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 26FM, PCGS# 9160)

    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.
