Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: The 1920 Double Eagle is the ultimate condition rarity of the series. In grades of MS 60 to MS 63 the dates trade for little or no premium above that of the most common issues. An MS 65 example of the 1920 is extremely rare and seldom offered. There are no MS 66 examples graded by either service. The quality of production for the date is very poor for the series. Many of the coins seen are struck less than average and most have extensive bag marks. I have also seen several high grade examples with deep patches of copper staining. The metal content for the issue must have been poorly prepared. The finest graded of the date, NGC MS 65, last sold for $44,563 in February 2012.

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.
