    Description

    1925-D Saint-Gaudens Twenty, MS62
    Nice Visual Appeal

    1925-D $20 MS62 NGC. One of the mintmarked Saints that saw many of its number melted during the Gold Recall of the 1930s. As a result, under 700 grading events are recorded for the issue in all grades at PCGS and NGC (compared to many tens of thousands for more common dates in the series). This lustrous example displays considerable mint frost in the fields covering orange-gold and-olive-green patina. Relatively few abrasions appear on the surfaces, with a few marks on the portrait likely limiting the grade of this attractive double eagle.
    From the Collection of Donald E. Bently, sold for the benefit of the Bently Foundation.(Registry values: N2998)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 26GB, PCGS# 9181)

    Weight: 33.44 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
