    1922-S Double Eagle, MS62
    Much-Melted Issue

    1922-S $20 MS62 PCGS. For ten years, the 1922-S was likely obtainable for close to face value from the Treasury, but few numismatists took advantage of the offer. 99.9% of the issue remained unissued until the 1933 gold recall, and were eventually melted. Fortunately for collectors, several bags of examples were released, and ended up in foreign bank holdings, repatriated after World War II. The present lemon-gold piece likely made a trip to Europe and back, and displays small to moderate obverse marks consistent with the grade.(Registry values: N1793)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 26G4, PCGS# 9174)

    Weight: 33.44 grams
