    1908-S Double Eagle, MS63
    Only 22,000 Pieces Struck
    Conditionally Scarce

    1908-S $20 MS63 PCGS. The 1908-S double eagle represents the first Saint-Gaudens twenty dollar emission from the San Francisco Mint. It is well-known and popular among collectors for that reason, and for its tiny mintage of 22,000 coins. Uncirculated coins are highly sought-after but conditionally scarce, with AU55 representing the average grade awarded at the leading grading services. This reddish-gold Select Uncirculated example enjoys bright, frosty mint luster that radiates from lightly abraded surfaces. The natural color and vibrant luster deliver excellent eye appeal for the grade. Population: 23 in 63, 62 finer (3/21).
    Ex: Dallas Signature (Heritage, 10/2019), lot 3332.
