    1924 Saint-Gaudens Twenty, MS67
    Exceptional Type Coin

    1924 $20 MS67 PCGS. CAC. The Philadelphia Mint struck a substantial mintage of 4.3 million Saint-Gaudens double eagles in 1924, all delivered between February and September of that year. Most of the coins were shipped to Federal Reserve Banks or the New York Assay Office and many were used to settle large accounts in foreign trade. Some may have been loaned to Germany, under the provisions of the Dawes Plan, and others were shipped to Argentina and Uruguay, to pay for wheat. Thus, many examples were safely held in foreign accounts and escaped the Gold Recall of 1933 and the subsequent melts that destroyed much of the gold coinage of this era. Roger W. Burdette estimates more than 1.2 million specimens have been repatriated from foreign holdings over the years, making the 1924 one of the most available issues of the series and a popular choice of type collectors.

    Even at the MS67 grade level, the 1924 can only be called scarce, but finer coins are virtually unobtainable. This spectacular Superb Gem exhibits well-detailed design elements and impeccably preserved orange-gold surfaces, with vibrant mint luster on both sides. Eye appeal is terrific.
