Choice 1924-S Saint-Gaudens Twenty
With Extraordinary Color

1924-S $20 MS64 PCGS Secure. The 1924-S Saint-Gaudens double eagle was once considered the rarest series issue, ahead of all the famous rarities like the 1927-D, 1921, and the uncollectible 1933. The situation changed in the 1950s, when small quantities of the date began appearing in European holdings. More examples were recovered in the intervening years, until today the 1924-S is considered merely scarce, rather than ultra-rare. Still, the issue remains a formidable rarity in grades above the Choice level.
The present coin is a stunning Choice Mint State example, with vivid orange-gold surfaces accented by hints of rose. The mint luster is full and frosty under the patina. The coin is well struck, with a touch of softness on the obverse legend that is frequently seen on this issue. Overall eye appeal is stunning due to the color and luster. PCGS has certified only three finer (6/10).
From The Bob Simpson Collection.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 26G9, PCGS# 9179)

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.

The staff at Heritage are amazing to work with. My wife and I were given the "red carpet treatment" from the moment we walked in. We felt safe and secure the moment we arrived.
