    1926 Double Eagle, MS66
    Gorgeously Toned
    Doubled Die Obverse

    1926 $20 -- Doubled Die Obverse -- MS66 PCGS. Minor die doubling is evident on the obverse rays and the designer's monogram, though this is different than the tripled die obverse variety listed in the Cherrypickers' reference. Eye-catching yellow-gold mint bloom engulfs each side, with shades of coppery-orange, olive, and lime-green color also seen over the upper-right portion of the obverse. The devices are fully defined, and the frosty surfaces are devoid of any mentionable abrasions. PCGS has certified only four numerically finer representatives (10/14).(Registry values: N2998)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 26GD, PCGS# 9183)

    Weight: 33.44 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
