    Stunning 1916-S Double Eagle, MS67

    1916-S $20 MS67 NGC. Among S-mint Saint-Gaudens issues, few dates are as obtainable as the 1916-S in grades up to and including Gem condition. Indeed, population figures indicate that the number of MS64 and finer survivors totals several thousand coins. The appearance of a Superb example, however, is a vastly different story. This marks only the fourth time that Heritage has offered a 1916-S at the MS67 level, including the outstanding Phillip H. Morse specimen that realized just over $25,000 in November 2005.
    This satin-like representative boasts peerless fields and lovely, delicate orange accents. Trivial contact in the vicinity of Liberty's knee is the only noticeable disturbance on the silky-smooth surfaces. There are only three coins so graded at NGC, with none finer, while PCGS has not certified an example better than MS66 (11/08).
    From The Scott Rudolph Collection.
