422 of the 1,427 coins in the Saddle Ridge Hoard of gold coins were 1889-S Double Eagles. Nearly 100 of those were Mint State and the quality was excellent. As a result, the PCGS Pop Report has swelled and nine examples were better than anything that had been known before. Where once the Finest Known was an MS64, now top honors go to a pair of PCGS MS65+s from the Saddle Ridge Hoard.
