    1927 Saint-Gaudens Twenty, MS67
    One Numerically Finer at PCGS

    1927 $20 MS67 PCGS. CAC. Ex: Fox. From a large mintage of more than 2.9 million pieces, the 1927 Saint-Gaudens double eagle was widely used in foreign trade near the time of issue. Accordingly, many examples were held in foreign accounts throughout the 1930s and escaped the Gold Recall of 1933 and subsequent melting that decimated many issues of this period. Today, the 1927 is one of the most available issues of the series in absolute terms, but the population drops off drastically at the MS67 grade level. This spectacular Superb Gem exhibits well-detailed design elements and impeccably preserved orange-gold surfaces that radiate vibrant mint luster throughout. Eye appeal is tremendous. Population: 27 in 67 (3 in 67+), 1 finer. CAC: 3 in 67, 0 finer (2/20).

    David Akers (2008) Comments:
    After the 1924, the 1927 is the most common Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle. It is available in quantity in all grades from MS60 to MS66, and there are even several Superb Gems known.
