Lot Description
1914 $20 MS66 PCGS. Ex: Duckor Collection. This is a truly remarkable example that resides at the pinnacle of the Condition Census for the 1914. In fact, only two others have been graded this high at PCGS, no MS66s have been seen at NGC, and none are finer at either service (9/05). A soft, variegated mixture of orange-gold and green-gold patina over each side greets the viewer, and is, perhaps, this coin's strongest attribute. The strike is razor sharp throughout with excellent definition on the torch, Liberty's fingers, the olive branch, and the cluster of oak leaves under the date. The virtually unmarked surfaces are frosty with a coruscant, matte-like finish. A cluster of tiny marks is seen on Liberty's left (facing) thigh and can serve as a future identifier for this exceedingly rare example. From The Phillip H. Morse Collection of Saint-Gaudens Coinage.
