Lot 1924

1924-D. PCGS graded MS-63. Light pink toning. Scarce date. Very frosty. Very choice. Some very minor strike weakness at Liberty's knee and on the opposing side centering on the eagle's body. The 1924-D is the first of the scarce to rare mintmarked issues that continue through the end of the Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle series. The majority of Mint state survivors in today's market originated in European hoards of the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s. Writing in 1988, Breen stated that a further 70 pieces were discovered in the summer of 1983. (Perhaps these coins were in the same Central American hoard that produced several Mint State 1909-D and 1922-S Double Eagles at around this time?) The otherwise reddish-golden color yields a very pleasing appearance. Die deterioration around the rims is often a problem for the '24-D, but the present survivor displays sharp definition in virtually all areas except those mentioned. There are no singularly noteworthy surface blemishes (PCGS # 9178) .
Estimated Value $5,000 - 5,500.

Realized $7,130
