1927-S Double Eagle, MS62+
1927-S $20 MS62+ PCGS. The 1927-S was in the 1940s regarded
as belonging to the second level of rarity behind the "classics" of
the Saint-Gaudens series at that time, the 1924-S, 1926-D, and
1926-S. It was even considered rarer than the 1927-D, which today
is the foremost collectible rarity within the series. Although many
millions of 1927-S double eagles were minted, few were ever
released, despite a small number of circulated examples known.
Mostly these coins were held as Treasury reserves, like various
other late-series issues. This appealing MS62+ example displays
brilliant mint luster over orange-gold surfaces that show a
peppering of light marks amid a bold strike. Population: 31 in 62
(1 in 62+), 42 finer (3/13).(Registry
