Description 1923-D $20 MS65 NGC. The 1923-D double eagle had a mintage in excess of 1.7 million coins, and enough examples survived in hoards (primarily overseas, as a result of heavy exportation for trade), that the date is easily obtainable in Gem condition. Garrett and Guth further note, in their Encyclopedia of U.S. Gold Coins: "As most examples are boldly struck and show radiant luster, this date is often chosen to represent the type if just a single coin is desired." This piece beautifully showcases those outstanding qualities, with frosty green-gold luster around the margins, and brighter yellow-gold hues in the centers. A thin die crack is noted through LIBERTY on the obverse, not uncommon for the issue. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $1762.50. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
