1929 $20 St. Gaudens. PCGS graded MS-64 PQ. Frosty with a hint of light gold and green toning. A Premium Quality coin. The collector who knows his dates in the Saint-Gaudens series of double eagles will know at once that 1929 is a date to be reckoned with in all states of preservation. We do not need to tell readers that this one spikes up dramatically on the scale of price and rarity compared to the far commoner issues from Philadelphia in 1924-28. We suppose from having viewed a fair number of 1929 double eagles that a most never reached circulation. That explains why this piece in particularly is strikingly brilliant throughout with no heavy abrasions present to sidetrack your enjoyment of the smooth surface and bold color. And like most which are quite fully struck, this marvel of precision minting shows all regions crisply detailed including the centers of the main designs, Liberty and the eagle. The year 1929 marked the pinnacle of the economic boom in America in the 'twenties. The so-called Roaring Twenties as historians have come to describe that remarkable decade. What better way to commemorate the times than by associating yourself with the past through the ownership of this handsome (and very rare) double eagle. At the 2007 A.N.A. Convention top Double Eagle experts including David Akers all agreed that this coin should be Mint State 65.Pop 81; 27 finer, 22 in 65, 5 in 66 (PCGS # 9190) .
Estimated Value $40,000 - 45,000.
The Dr. Robert Hesselgesser Collection.

Realized $52,900
