    Terrific MS67 1924 Twenty Dollar

    1924 $20 MS67 PCGS. As most collectors know, the 1924 is the most frequently seen Saint-Gaudens issue, especially in the better grades of Uncirculated. Coincidentally, it is also one of the best-produced issues in the series. Rarity aside, we believe the best-produced issues to be 1923-D, 1908-S, 1928, and 1924. Each issue is noted for its splendid luster characteristics, and the first three are also noted for vibrant color. The 1924 is available in a wide range of colors from golden-orange to copper-gold, and sometimes even pinkish-gold. This particular coin is in the copper-gold color range. The surfaces are refreshingly free from the abrasions that all too often plague not only this issue but Saint-Gaudens twenties in general. The mint luster is richly frosted and rolls around each side as the coin is angled beneath a light. The devices are sharply detailed as well. Population: 79 in 67, 1 finer (3/10).

Morse collection and the Dr. and Mrs. Steven L. Duckor collection.
