Lot 2180

$20 St. Gaudens. 1907. High relief, Roman numerals, wire rim. PCGS graded MS-62. While not the finest graded of this most popular United States coin, this one does possess a lovely coppery toning, especially on the reverse. We believe this copper toning came about from long storage in a small velvet lined coin box which is included with this lot. The back of the box states "Very Rare Bold Relief F22 S-127". One small spot is noted between BE on the obverse, and another on the reverse on the forward edge of the wing which someone has attempted to remove with a sharp instrument. Close examination will also find a small rim tick left of the U of UNITED. The fields are clean, and the balance of the handling marks are clustered on the eagle's wings and thus are not that distracting. Always in strong demand and approaching the 100th year since it was coined (PCGS # 9135) .
Estimated Value $7,500 - 8,500.
From the Benson collection and purchased from an unknown source in the 1940s.

Realized $10,350
