Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: After much struggle Charles Barber greatly reduced the relief for the Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle from the original design. Finally, the coins could be struck in large numbers. The digits in the date were changed to Arabic numerals and over 300,000 coins were released in late 1907. Most examples seen are Mint State and Gems can be found with little effort. Many were shipped to European banks and are still being found to this day among recent gold shipments. The finest business strike example I have seen is in the Smithsonian collection. The coin is nearly flawless and would easily grade MS 68. None have been graded by NGC above the MS 67 level, with one selling in that grade for $27,600 in 2008. A unique example is known in matte proof that was part of the earlier mentioned Colonel North set of Saint–Gaudens coinage.
