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.

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.
