Description 1911 $20 MS62 NGC. Q. David Bowers, in A Guide Book of Double Eagle Gold Coins, writes of the 1911: "Eye appeal can vary considerably on this issue, and it will pay to wait for a nice one." The piece here offered reveals surprisingly few abrasions, even under magnification. Vibrant, satiny luster bathes each side in yellow-gold radiance, beautifully highlighting the sharp motifs. This issue does not become truly scarce until the Gem grade level, but high-end examples within the lower grades, such as this piece, draw strong demand from knowledgeable series collectors. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $1645.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
