||1911-D $20 MS65 NGC. CAC. The 1911-D double eagle had a moderate mintage of 846,500 coins, and large quantities survive in Mint State condition. While not nearly as common as many later dates, such as the 1924 and 1927, this well-manufactured issue is easily obtainable in grades through MS65, making it an ideal choice for the type collector seeking an attractive, slightly lower-mintage branch mint issue. This piece displays soft green and peach-gold hues over satiny, well-preserved surfaces. As is characteristic of this issue, the design elements are boldly impressed, beautifully complementing the glowing luster. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
