Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: This issue is split into two groups: the regular date and the 1909 9/8 overdate. The regular date coins have just started to be recognized for their rarity in MS 64 or higher grades and none have been graded finer than MS 66 by NGC. This is one of the true condition rarities of the series, and a very difficult coin to find above MS 63. None have been certified by NGC above MS 66, one of which sold for $47,725 in 2011. Any serious collector of Saint-Gaudens Double Eagles will tell you that this is one of the toughest issues to find in Choice condition.
