1907 $20 St. Gaudens. High relief, wire rim. NGC graded Proof 61. A few minor rim marks. One of the scarcer Proof strikings, this is a typically bold representative of the much talked-about first-year Saint-Gaudens double eagle, the Roman numerals high relief. The warmly colored, reddish to green-gold and pale orange features are free of all but a few tiny handling marks. Perfect for a U.S. gold Type Set. Our first impulse is to encourage bidders to rush to their computer keyboards and enter a bid, having learned the lessons of numismatics so well that though the heavens might fall, this coin will endure for generations to come as America's premiere gold coin. Pop 4; 78 finer.
Estimated Value $15,000 - 17,000.

Realized $15,525
