1921-Saint-Gaudens-Double-Eagle

A 1921 Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle graded MS61 by NGC sold for $117,500 in Heritage's recent auction at the 2013 Summer FUN Show.  The 1921 double eagle is one of the more rare mintages, with almost all of them held in banks as currency reserves until they were melted down in 1933. It is estimated that fewer than 125 of this date still exist in any condition.

The official lot description on the Heritage website describes the coin as:

The present coin is an attractive MS61 example, with well-detailed design elements and vibrant mint luster. The vivid green and orange-gold surfaces are lightly abraded for the grade, and this coin possesses ample eye appeal. This offering represents an important opportunity to acquire one of the classic rarities in 20th century coinage. Census: 17 in 61, 20 finer (6/13).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 26G2, PCGS# 9172)
