1929 $20 Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle PCGS MS64 – SOLD

Description

1929 $20 Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle PCGS MS64. We don’t often have the opportunity to offer for sale a Double Eagle struck from 1929 onward, but here we present a Very Choice Mint State 64 example recently acquired from one of our clientele. Despite the original mintage of 1.7 million coins, most all of the original mintage was melted down during the government recall. Evidence of this is PCGS has graded a total of 189 coins in all states-of-preservation. This is a fraction of the original mintage! In the Mint State 64 grade, there are 81 coins accounted for since 1986. The Coin World Values iNdex values the 1929 at $50,000 and the PCGS CU at $45,000. This is a must for the date-set Saint collector and a welcome addition to a complete collection.
