Satiny 1926-D Twenty, MS621926-D $20 MS62 PCGS. In the 1940s, the 1926-D double eagle was believed to be an extremely rare coin. The generous mintage of 481,000 pieces was nearly wiped out in the great Gold Recall of the 1930s. Fortunately, some of that mintage was used in international commerce, and a small number of specimens of the issue have been discovered in European holdings over the years. Today, the issue is still the 10th scarcest date in the 54-coin series.
The strike is sharp on the present specimen, with the pillars of the Capitol dome clearly delineated. Satiny mint luster envelops the coin, and only the scattered handling marks limit the grade. Population: 45 in 62, 74 finer (2/10).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 26GE, PCGS# 9184)
