1907 $20 St. Gaudens. High relief, wire rim. PCGS graded MS-63. A nice example of this popular type coin. Both sides are blessed with pale orange to greenish-gold color with rich satiny swirls in the undertones. The fresh surfaces allow full appreciation of the boldly struck high relief devices. Mounted in a protective PCGS holder, it will continue to astound and impress all who gaze upon it in the generations to come (PCGS # 9135) .

This has a thin wire-edge or "fin" (in mint parlance) around the wide flat border. Such an edge resulted from metal being squeezed into the space between the coinage die and collar. Mintage of the High Relief coins totaled 11,250 struck in November and December, 1907. Wire-edge pieces are much more plentiful than those with flat rim, with an approximate three to one ratio.
Estimated Value $21,000 - 22,000.

Realized $22,425
