1924-S Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle. MS-62 (PCGS). Decades ago, the heavily melted 1924-S double eagle was considered to be one of, if not the rarest Saint-Gaudens issue. A modest migration from Europe over the past thirty years now places this issue as a median scarcity in the series, being very similar in both overall population and condition rarity to the 1924-D. Survivors tend to range in grade from AU 58 to MS63. This straw-golden example displays full luster and a typical number of minor handling marks overall. A fully original example. Only 22 have been graded finer at PCGS.
