Lot Description
1925 $20 MS67 NGC. The 1925 double eagle is a relatively common date, if not "1924 or 1927" common, and Gems and even Premium Gems are available with just a little searching. Tracking down a Superb Gem takes far more effort, though with the offering of this example, Heritage has had a Superb Gem representative of the issue in three consecutive auctions, an unusual feat and privilege. In any event, this MS67 example compares well to the two preceding pieces, as well as any other survivors of the date. Lightly patinated yellow-gold fields are frosted on the high points, and only a few tiny rim irregularities and interior grazes preclude an even finer designation. Census: 19 in 67, 0 finer (2/11).
