1926-D Twenty Dollar, MS62
1926-D $20 MS62 PCGS. CAC. Like its much rarer D-mint
counterpart from the following year, the 1926-D double eagle was
heavily melted. As described by Garrett and Guth: "The few that did
survive were either found overseas or were held back by a handful
of wealthy collectors able to keep them through the turmoil of the
ensuing few decades."
Very Scarce D-Mint from the 1920s
The present example is strongly appealing for the grade, with lustrous wheat-gold surfaces showing hints of orange. The devices are well-struck. Though abrasions below Liberty's flowing hair, at her midsection, and near the olive branch combine to preclude Select status, this remains an important survivor. PCGS has graded just 81 finer examples (11/13).
