Heritage Auction Description:
Die Adjustment Strike on a 1922 Double Eagle
1922 $20 Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle--Die Adjustment Strike--NGC. The NGC insert omits a grade, but we suggest MS63 or finer, since practically all of the wispy abrasions present on the coin were on the planchet prior to the strike. Weakly brought up on the high points and along the borders. Nonetheless fully lustrous, and free from the bagmarks that plague nearly all survivors repatriated from foreign bank holdings.
