1922 Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle. MS-64+ (PCGS). CAC. A frosty and sharply struck example with pale golden-tan patina. Many of the 1,375,500 double eagles that the Philadelphia Mint produced in 1922 were exported during the 1920s. These coins remained as part of foreign bank reserves until after World War Two, when they began to make their way back to the United States. Today, the 1922 is readily available in lower Mint State grades, but it is grossly underrated at the near-Gem and full Gem levels.
