4355: 1907 $20 High Relief, Wire Rim MS65 PCGS. CAC.
Today, High Relief double eagles are virtually irresistible to collectors, especially when they are as well-preserved as this charming Gem.
Lot 4448: 1914-S $20 MS67 NGC.
This is the single finest coin certified by either NGC or PCGS.
Lot 4479: 1922-S $20 MS65 NGC.
While the 1922 Philadelphia issue (with its mintage of fewer than 1.4 million pieces) is available in most grades thanks to extensive repatriation, the 1922-S double eagle was not so fortunate.
Lot 4503: 1927-S $20 MS62 PCGS.
Despite an initial mintage of over 3.1 million double eagles at San Francisco in 1927, it is highly prized and elusive.
Lot 4504: 1927-S $20 MS65 PCGS.
The 1927-S has long been recognized as a key date in the Saint-Gaudens double eagle series. Beauty, rarity, and an illustrious pedigree make this coin a prize for the advanced collector. Ex: NERCA; Dr. Steven Duckor (2006); Jay Brahin (2007).
Lot 4507: 1929 $20 MS64 PCGS. CAC.
Widely recognized as the first of the key issues at the end of the Saint-Gaudens series of twenties.
Lot 4508: 1929 $20 MS66 PCGS. CAC.
One of the finest known of an issue once renowned as a major rarity.
Lot 4509: 1910 $20 PR63 PCGS.
For the type collector who desires a single proof Saint-Gaudens double eagle, either the 1909 or 1910 are ideal candidates, with the soft, satiny appearance of the 'Roman Finish.'
