    Sharply Defined 1927-S Twenty Dollar, MS62

    1927-S $20 MS62 PCGS. CAC. The 1927-S is a well-produced late-series issue that at one time was believed to be the fourth-rarest Saint-Gaudens double eagle, behind the 1924-S, 1926-D, and 1926-S. Today, in Mint State the 1927-D is the rarest collectible Saint, and the 1927-S is in ninth place behind several other well-known series rarities, such as the 1920-S, the 1921, and the 1930-32 rarities.
    The usual 1927-S displays excellent mint luster, and while the mint luster on the present MS62 example is not up to par compared to other 1927-S twenties, it is still above-average for the series. The strike is sharply defined throughout, with light orange-gold coloration predominant. A couple of medium-sized marks in the obverse fields account for the grade. Population: 33 in 62, 36 finer (1/11).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 26GJ, PCGS# 9188)
