1908-D Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle. No Motto. MS-64 (PCGS). A lustrous and vivid rose-gold example that also offers sharp striking detail throughout. The addition of the motto IN GOD WE TRUST in 1908 by Congressional mandate resulted in the final major design change for Augustus Saint-Gaudens inspired double eagle design. The premier Denver Mint issue of the new type, the 1908-D was once considered a major rarity even in lower Mint State grades. Enough examples have been repatriated in recent years -- starting with a particularly impressive bounty located in Central America in 1983 -- that todays fortunate collectors will have little difficulty obtaining a coin in the MS-60 to MS-64 range. PCGS# 9143. NGC ID: 26F7.
