    1927 Double Eagle, MS67
    Common Date, Rare Grade

    1927 $20 MS67 PCGS. CAC. The 1927, sporting a mintage approaching 3 million pieces, is the second most common issue in the Saint-Gaudens double eagle series, trailing only the 1924. PCGS and NGC combined have graded nearly 200,000 coins! Even Gem and Premium Gem specimens will present no difficulty for the collector to locate. The population takes a precipitous drop at the Superb Gem level, however. The two services combined have certified fewer than 70 specimens at the MS67 level, and none finer.

    In addition to its availability in the better Mint State grades, the 1927 is one of the most attractive in the series. In fact, it ranks among the top in terms of overall eye appeal. Most examples are sharply struck and possess bright mint frost or smooth satiny surfaces. Luster is usually excellent to outstanding. This MS67 will provide an outstanding addition to a high-grade type collection. The mint luster is of the frosted variant, seen here it is profoundly deep, more akin to a 1928 than the typical 1927. The surfaces are deep reddish-gold with a significant presence of lilac on the reverse. Both sides are essentially mark-free. Population: 14 in 67, 0 finer (3/13).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 26GG, PCGS# 9186)
