1907. High Relief, Roman Numerals, Wire Rim. PCGS graded MS-64 PQ. CAC Approved. Housed in an Old Green Holder. Only 11,250 minted. Very close to MS-65. A popular date and always in demand. While we often offer several High Relief Double Eagles in our sales, we are always pleased to be given the opportunity to catalog an example that grades as outstanding as this premium quality MS64. This truly is an attractive coin. The smooth, satin-like frost lies undisturbed for the most part by even the tiniest alloy spot, and we are also unable to locate more than a few tiny abrasions, all that edges this into the Premium Quality class of its grade. Both sides are bright golden color that further highlights the already impressive eye appeal. In sum, this is a Roman Numerals $20 that would tempt the collector who demands nothing short of the best for his collection of U.S. gold coins.

Today, the MCMVII issues of 1907 are highly cherished by collectors and are among the favorites in all American numismatics. When the Treasury Department proposed issuing new gold bullion coins in 1986, no finer design could be devised than to recreate Augustus Saint-Gaudens' 80-year-old design. The mint even incorporated the Roman numerals (PCGS # 9135) .
Estimated Value $28,000 - 30,000.

Realized $37,600
