    Important Gem 1924-D Twenty Dollar

    1924-D $20 MS65 PCGS. The reverse of this Gem displays vibrant orange-gold fields and light champagne highlights over the eagle's body. Free of even the slightest mentionable blemish, this side of the coin would easily merit at least an MS66 designation if it existed in a vacuum. While the obverse displays the same desirable contrasting coloration between the fields and central devices, it also reveals several wispy abrasions, as well as a somewhat distracting one in the left field below Liberty's flowing hair, and another on the lower leg, that overrule this piece's bid for a higher grade. Although nowhere near complete, the strike is admirable and powerfully draws forth every major detail. An important, carefully preserved Gem specimen. Population: 4 in 65, 2 finer (9/05).
    From The Phillip H. Morse Collection of Saint-Gaudens Coinage.(#9178)(Registry values: N10218)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 26G8, PCGS# 9178)
