Description

Elusive Gem 1926-S Double Eagle

1926-S $20 MS65 PCGS. The 1926-S is among several mintmarked Saint-Gaudens issues--1924-S, 1925-D, 1926-D, 1927-S--that were once considered among the rarest in the series. Today those issues are still scarce, but more available than formerly due to hoard discoveries and repatriations of overseas caches.
In the case of the 1926-S, however, Gems are still quite rare. PCGS has certified 28 in MS65 (less duplicates, as always), with only three pieces finer (11/09). The present Gem offers rolling, thick mint luster. Most of the patina is an even orange-gold, with deeper reddish patina on the obverse surrounding a center of lilac. The strike is uniformly sharp, save for some bluntness on Liberty's toes. Both sides are clean and lack obvious marks.
From The Five Point Collection.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 26GF, PCGS# 9185)

The Coinage of Augustus Saint-Gaudens as Illustrated by the Morse and Duckor Collections
Revised Edition by James L. Halperin, Mark R. Borckardt, Mark Van Winkle, Jon Amato, and Gregory J. Rohan, with special contributor David W. Akers

The Coinage of Augustus Saint-Gaudens is an issue-by-issue examination of these two artistically inspired series of gold coins. Each date and mintmark is reviewed with up-to-date information, much of which has never been previously published. The book is based on two extraordinary collections: The Phillip H. Morse collection and the Dr. and Mrs. Steven L. Duckor collection.

This is a most satisfied customer's testimonial of a true gentleman in today's era. It is rare that one encounters through the course of life a person which one has read in childhood' s classics or seen in movies of old.
