Lot Description
1929 $20 MS63 PCGS. Although not as difficult as the more publicized Twenties of the 1930s, the 1929 Saint-Gaudens is a challenging coin in its own right. The nearly 1.8 million pieces originally struck were nearly all melted, leaving only a few hundred pieces for 21st century numismatists. This modestly abraded yellow-gold example is notable for its frostiness and strong eye appeal. From the Virgil Farstad Collection.
