1911 St. Gaudens $20
NGC PF66
Inquire SOLD

1911 $20 PR66 NGC. The year 1911 marked the abandonment of the experimental "Roman Gold" method of proofing, and a return to the 1908 matte proof process. While the process was the same in 1911 as it was in 1908, the results were noticeably different. While the 1908 coins have distinctive coarse-grain, khaki-green surfaces, the proofs from 1911 lack that depth of color and show a finer granularity.

An even 100 proofs were struck to which Breen stated that "probably fewer than 20 survive." It is our belief that somewhere around 40 to 50 separate pieces have survived today as recognizable proofs from the original mintage.

A spectacular example, sure to please the specialist of rare proof St Gaudens Double Eagles.

This one is sold. If you would like us to find one like it for you or, if

Happy Collecting,
