    Description

    NGC 1931-D MS 63. The 1931-D is one of the legendary group of late date Saints from 1929 to 1932 that are all very rare and seldom seen except when a major collection is broken up. Possibly as many as 30-35 piece are extant today in all grades, over half of which came from a "mini-hoard" of approximately 15-20 pieces. Akers believes the '31-D to be of equal overall rarity to the 1931 and 1932 issues, and is roughly equivalent to the 1930-S in condition rarity. This piece shows a few small marks in the center of the obverse (mostly) and the surfaces are frosted with a pale olive tint at the margins of each side. A rare opportunity to acquire this elusive and highly respected major rarity in the series of Saint-Gaudens twenties. Population: 8 in 63, 4 finer. Trends $23,500. (NGC ID# 26GP, PCGS# 9193)

    Revised Edition by James L. Halperin, Mark R. Borckardt, Mark Van Winkle, Jon Amato, and Gregory J. Rohan, with special contributor David W. Akers

    The Coinage of Augustus Saint-Gaudens is an issue-by-issue examination of these two artistically inspired series of gold coins. Each date and mintmark is reviewed with up-to-date information, much of which has never been previously published. The book is based on two extraordinary collections: The Phillip H. Morse collection and the Dr. and Mrs. Steven L. Duckor collection.
