1924-S $20 St. Gaudens Double Eagle Gold Coin NGC MS65
Item Details
Description
One 1924-S $20 St. Gaudens Double Eagle Gold Coin NGC Graded MS65. From a large mintage of 2.9 million pieces, the 1924-S Saint-Gaudens double eagle was one of the most challenging issues of the series in the 1940s, when collecting twenty dollar gold pieces first became popular in this country. It seems that most of the mintage was held in government stockpiles until the Gold Recall of 1933, and subsequently melted and stored as gold bars at the Fort Knox Bullion Repository. Roger W. Burdette discovered about 250,000 coins were distributed to Federal Reserve Banks, but far fewer actually reached circulation in this country. The present coin is a delightful Gem, with well-detailed design elements and well-preserved yellow and rose-gold surfaces that show only minor signs of contact. Vibrant mint luster radiates from both sides and eye appeal is outstanding. NGC Certified.
