1925-D $20 St. Gaudens. NGC graded MS-65. A frosty gem specimen with delicate golden sunset toning on both sides with hints of light olive about the borders. Lovely rich shades of color. A key date. About as close to watertight perfection as can be expected, this vibrant 1925-D makes for eye-popping originality when examined closely and with a discerning eye. As soon as one sees the booming luster, it comes as no surprise everything is razor-sharp on all devices. All sorts of succulent thoughts come to mind when we examine it, but the best that can be said its that the coin easily fits into the fabric of MS65 standards. It is a lock-solid MS65. And it has the enormous advantage that it can never be repeated in many auctions due to the low population, which we list at the end of this discussion. When a numismatist has given you those lengthy virtues, which is about all he ever thinks of, then the baton is passed to the auction bidder to tell the world what he believes the coin thus described is worth. Pop 7; 1 finer in 66 (PCGS # 9181) .

Historic note: Like the 1924-D twenty, the 1925-D also had its rarity ranking readjusted since the mid-20th century by the emergence of a few small hoards overseas.
Estimated Value $70,000 - 80,000.

Realized $80,500
