1911-D Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle. MS-66+ (PCGS). An exceptionally well preserved example, both sides are silky smooth in appearance with a matte-like texture throughout the fields. Pale peach patina overlays khaki-gold surfaces and complements the sharply defined devices. This is the grade level at which the otherwise readily obtainable 1911-D double eagle develops into a significant condition rarity, and just 12 coins have been certified finer by PCGS. A fleeting bidding opportunity for the high quality gold type or date collector.
