    1926-S Saint-Gaudens Twenty, MS65
    Conditionally Rare Any Finer

    1926-S $20 MS65 PCGS. The 1926-S Saint-Gaudens double eagle claims a large mintage of more than 2 million pieces, but most of those coins were held in government storage and subsequently melted, after the Gold Recall of 1933 took effect. The 1926-S was actually considered a great rarity before a relatively small number of coins surfaced in European holdings in the 1950s. The 1926-S is still quite scarce in MS65 condition, and finer coins are prime condition rarities.

    This spectacular Gem exhibits well-detailed design elements, with just a trace of the usual softness on the torch hand and the Capitol. The well-preserved orange-gold surfaces radiate vibrant mint luster from both sides and eye appeal is outstanding. Population: 40 in 65 (2 in 65+), 4 finer (8/20).(Registry values: N7079)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 26GF, PCGS# 9185)

    Weight: 33.44 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
