Take a look at some of the highlights from our upcoming Currency & Coin Auction:

[US] 1907 High Relief Wire Edge $20 St. Gaudens

498F

PCGS MS-62 MCMVII Regular Issue, High Relief Wire Rim. Quite Rare. With a mintage of 12,367, Q. David Bowers estimates that only 6000 exist. The mintage was limited because the mint discovered that it took 3 strikes to fully impress the details. The motto “In God We Trust” was left off due to President Theodore Roosevelt’s personal request. The coin here seems accurately grade with marks appropriate to the grade. Don’t miss the chance to add this coin to your collection as it is essential to any complete US Gold Type Collection.
