1926-S Double Eagle, MS63
1926-S $20 MS63 NGC. Like other branch mint double eagles
from the mid-1920s, the 1926-S twenty was both heavily melted and
hoarded. The current example looks too pristine to have been a
hoard coin, unless it was given special care. A radiantly lustrous
orange-gold color with rose and green highlights, the fields and
devices are virtually devoid of abrasions. The strike is bold
except at the very top of the torch and a few stars surrounding it.
The eagle is fully struck. Add in exceptional eye appeal, and this
example is clearly high-end for its Select Uncirculated grade. In
many ways it displays characteristics that are suggestive of an
even higher designation.
