Lot Description
1929 $20 MS61 PCGS. During the Roaring Twenties, far more investors were interested in paper profits than hard money -- much to their detriment, if they were still in Wall Street shares during the stunning stock market crash of October 1929. Virtually none of the more than 1.7 million double eagles struck in Philadelphia that year ever left Treasury control, and only a few hundred examples are known today -- far fewer than the number of collectors who want one. This is a more affordable example, abraded on the high points with wispy flaws in the fields but great apricot-to-gold luster. Housed in a green label holder.
