Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: This is probably the most magnificent coin to have ever been produced. The coin was designed by Augustus Saint–Gaudens who was America’s greatest living artist at the time. Unfortunately, the coins were impractical to strike and these patterns are all that remain of the initial efforts by Saint–Gaudens. There are about 14 or 15 examples known. The first coin struck has a plain edge. The die was cracked and replaced. This example first surfaced in the incredible set offered in the early 1908s by Stack’s as the Colonel North set. Some experts speculate that the set actually came from the Charles Barber family. Two are known with inverted edge lettering, one of which is lightly circulated (can you imagine). The Smithsonian collection contains three examples of this fabulous issue. Most of the known examples are superb, with the finest coins graded PR 69. I have often stated that it’s a shame that 1907 Ultra High Relief Double Eagles cost so much. Every collector would own one if it were possible.

NGC Price and Value Guides Disclaimer

Disclaimer: The prices listed in the various NGC Price and Value Guides are compiled from a number of independent, third party sources in the numismatic community which NGC believes to be reliable. Prices provided are averages, not specific prices for individual coins. Further, because these prices are only updated from time to time, they do not reflect short term pricing trends, which are quite common and are often quite dramatic, given the volatile nature of the collectible coin marketplace. This is especially true for rare coins, where there are fewer sales and greater variations in sale prices. For all of these reasons, the prices in these guides are designed to serve merely as one of many measures and factors that coin buyers and sellers can use in determining coin values. These prices are not intended, and should not be relied upon, to replace the due diligence and — when appropriate — expert consultation that coin buyers and sellers should undertake when entering into a coin transaction. As such, NGC disclaims all warranties, express or implied, with respect to the information contained in the NGC Guides. By using the NGC Guides, the user agrees that neither NGC nor any of its affiliates, shareholders, officers, employees or agents shall have any liability for any loss or damage of any kind, including without limitation any loss arising from reliance on the information contained in the Guides.
