Rare 1931-D Twenty, MS63 NGC1931-D $20 MS63 NGC. The 1931-D Double Eagle began as a low mintage (106,500 pieces) issue. Unfortunately for budget-minded collectors, the majority of these coins were retained in the Denver Mint and then melted during the gold recall of the Great Depression. Today, this issue is one of the premier rarities in the Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle series, an honor that it shares with such other dates as the 1920-S, 1921, 1927-D, 1927-S, 1929, 1930-S, 1931, 1932, and, of course, the unobtainable 1933. This is a relatively nice coin for the grade with a frosty, golden-rose appearance. Some subtle green-gold color circles the borders on each side. There are few abrasions, several on Liberty's figure preclude a Choice designation. Sharply struck, as expected, this coin would form the centerpiece of even the most advanced Double Eagle collection.(#9193) (Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 26GP, PCGS# 9193)
