Fascinating write up. You know it's rare when there's a paragraph description of every coin of that issue!

For sure eye candy, but this analysis was the most interesting part of the HA description for me:


Quote:
The small surviving population of 1927-D double eagles, 12 or 13 pieces all told, is neatly divided into three classes:

--Those which have appeared with some regularity (although not frequency) in the marketplace, and here we count seven pieces (#1-#7 below);

--Those one or two numismatic phantoms, coins that have seemingly disappeared from the numismatic marketplace, possible duplicates, one unseen since 1973, the other (if indeed it is another) unseen since 1957 (#8 and #9, respectively); and

--The four coins presumably off the market forever, ensconced in longstanding museum collections -- the Connecticut State Museum piece and the three in the Smithsonian (#10-#13 below).

"If you climb a good tree, you get a push."
-----Ghanaian proverb

"The danger we all now face is distinguishing between what is authentic and what is performed."
-----King Adz

Whenever I find any featured item in the magazine, Intelligent Review, the intrigue seems to bump up a notch which is what happened when I read about the 27D Saint discussed in this thread.

Some of the info. was already covered on Heritage's website but there are still a few new tidbits in the mag. review.

Enjoy:

Back to the other point that T-BOP brought up:

Spence , that was a rather fine answer you gave to OP . Maybe some day you will become a mod


Spence has always been helpful and dispenses wise advice, in my opinion. I would seriously second the nomination for Spence for Moderation-Hood.

Because of all the hype over the 27-D I failed to mention that the owner of this $ 2.1 million gem also sold the remainder of his other less expensive Saints. Pocket change:
