Lot Details
MCMVII (1907) High Relief $20 Wire Rim
The distinctive finish, strike, and color associated with this classic issue fully adorn this remarkable high quality specimen. Rich yellow-gold fields and devices are awash in the shimmering satin-velvet surface appearance that differentiates High Relief double eagles from the typical 1907 low relief business strike. The characteristic swirls and die lines are entirely apparent in the fields on either side. In light of the size, softness, and unprotected nature of this design, it truly is astounding that such a specimen has survived in this state of preservation; it obviously received an inordinate amount of care both at the Mint and through the more than a century of time that has elapsed since it has been in collectors' hands. There are no marks or spots worthy of individual mention to serve as pedigree identifiers. An important opportunity for an advanced numismatist. (PCGS 9135) Brilliant Uncirculated
