1907 $20 Liberty. PCGS graded Proof 64 Cameo PQ. The Liberty $20s from 1900 through 1907 saw the largest production of Proof gold coins of this denomination up to this point. Agreed, the word "large" is a relative term. This is especially the case when referring to Proof double eagles. Production in 1907, for instance, amounted to 78 Proofs. Some might even say the 1907 issue, last year of its design, might be a "sleeper" meaning it was undervalued in relation to other dates at the turn of the 20th century. This lovely Proof has vibrant yellow-gold hues with warmly reflective, mirrored surface on both sides. The lightly contrasting devices give it the desired cameo appearance. No copper stains or marks mar the delicate features. While just shy of "Gem", and with a few faint hairlines, this is an exceptionally attractive Choice Proof 64 example. Just added to the PCGS population. Pop 9; 3 finer; 2 in 65; 1 in 67. (PCGS # 89123) .
Estimated Value $33,000 - 36,000.

Realized $41,400
