Lot Description
1925 $20 MS67 PCGS. Rich orange-gold luster blazes from the fields on the obverse and reverse. The strike is sharp as expected, and the surfaces are delightfully clean. Precious few double eagles of any date are so well preserved, and finding a Superb example is usually accomplished with some patience and a significant investment. The larger and heavier the coin, the more likely it is to get bagmarked, especially so for gold coins, which are softer than silver or copper coins. Examination of the surfaces will find a few scattered ticks and copper specks. Identifiable by a short vertical nick which is located near the middle of the sun on the reverse. A stellar coin for the specialist, with a tiny combined NGC and PCGS Population of a mere 11 coins graded this fine, with none seen finer.
