    Description

    1908-D With Motto Twenty, MS65+
    Exemplary Surface Quality

    1908-D $20 Motto MS65+ PCGS. The rarity of finer examples should give this Plus-graded Gem 1908-D With Motto double eagle significant appeal to the budget-restricted collector. Frosty orange-gold luster illuminates seemingly perfect field preservation and boldly rendered central devices. Trivial contact marks on the high points of the eagle and Liberty's figure is all that limits the grade. PCGS records 35 finer representatives (11/15).
    From The Steve Alter Collection.(Registry values: N2998)
