    1931 Double Eagle, AU Details
    Important 1930s Twenty

    1931 $20 -- Smoothed -- PCGS Genuine. AU Details. Any double eagle with a date in the 1930s is scarce at a minimum. Though more than 2.9 million 1931 twenties were produced, virtually all of them never left government control were destroyed by the Treasury later in the decade. This is one of the few escapees, though it was unable to avoid an unfortunate polishing (PCGS calls it "smoothing") of its yellow-gold surfaces that show touches of orange. A small copper spot is noted on the near wing of the lightly worn eagle. Despite its impairments, this is a genuinely challenging coin that is sure to find an appreciative home.(Registry values: N4719)
