    1927-S Double Eagle, MS62+
    Appealing Mint Luster

    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 values: N7079) (NGC ID# 26GJ, PCGS# 9188)
