Lot Description
1925 $20 MS67 NGC. The 1925 Saint-Gaudens double eagle was produced in large quantities, with a mintage of 2.8 million pieces. As the large production figure suggests, the date is readily available today, even in high grades, and enjoys great popularity with type collectors. Of course, the population does thin out at higher Mint State levels, and coins in Superb Gem condition are rare. The issue is unknown above MS67 (12/10). The present coin is a sharply detailed Superb Gem, with pale rose-gold surfaces, and ample frosty mint luster. The fields are free of mentionable contact marks, and eye appeal is quite strong. Census: 18 in 67, 0 finer (12/10).
