    1924-S Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle, MS64
    Seldom Encountered Any Finer

    1924-S $20 MS64 PCGS. Despite the large mintage of 2.9 million pieces, the 1924-S Saint-Gaudens double eagle is an elusive issue in today's market, and it was once one of the most challenging dates of the series. Roger W. Burdette notes only about 250,000 examples were ever released to Federal Reserve Banks, and a much smaller number actually reached circulation in this country. Fortunately, some coins were used to settle accounts in foreign exchange and a small number have been repatriated from foreign holdings over the years. Most examples seen are in circulated or lower Mint State grades and the issue is very rare above the MS64 grade level.

    The present coin is an attractive Choice example, with well-detailed design elements and well-preserved orange-gold surfaces that show only minor signs of contact. Vibrant mint luster adds to the outstanding visual appeal. PCGS has graded only six numerically finer examples (2/17).(Registry values: N4719)
