Lot 2207

1907. High Relief, Roman Numerals, Flat Rim. PCGS graded AU-55. Pleasing details and a hint of gold tone on this lustrous example. Numismatists learn early on that Augustus Saint-Gaudens designed the beautiful Double Eagle named after him that made its debut in 1907. His failing health precluded him from taking an active part in the final steps leading to its production. That honor, as well as the disagreeable task of working with the grouchy Mint Engraver Charles E. Barber, went to Saint-Gaudens' apprentice Henry Hering. The Engraver was asked to prepare master dies for Hering's modified ultra-high relief design. Six sets of working dies were then created, from which the Mint delivered 11,250 High Relief Saint-Gaudens Double Eagles (PCGS # 9136) .
Estimated Value $8,000 - 8,500.

Realized $11,500
