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.

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.
