Lot Description
1929 $20 MS63 NGC. The 1929 double eagle (1,179,750 pieces), along with all of the issues from this date forward, is challenging to acquire in any grade. Most examples are noticeably abraded, leading David Akers (2008) to say: "Exceptionally well preserved 1929 Double Eagles are few and very far between." This Select specimen displays ebullient mint luster. A well executed strike imparts sharp definition to the design elements, including the panes on the Capitol building, Liberty's fingers and toes, and the eagle's plumage. A few minute contacts concealed within the eagle's feathers barely preclude the next highest grade.
