***Auction Highlight*** 1915-p Saint-Gaudens $20 Gold Double Eagle Graded ms65+ By SEGS. 0 HIGHLIGHT OF THE NIGHT - The Philadelphia Mint coined 152,000 double eagles in 1915, following the pattern of low mintages from the previous several years. Afterward, no more pieces were coined for the remainder of the decade.The typical 1915 is in a low-Mint State grade, averaging MS61.7.The collector who seeks a lower-level Mint State example of the 1915 double eagle will have no problem finding an acceptable representative with only a little searching. However, the collector who seeks a Choice MS64 example will need patience, and the seeker of a Gem MS65 will require considerable perseveranceIn A Handbook of 20th-Century United States Gold Coins 1907-1933, David Akers comments: "From an overall 'eye appeal' standpoint, the 1915 is an easy winner over the other Philadelphia Mint issues from 1908 With Motto to 1915; only the 1912 even comes close." The coin at hand is one of those appealing pieces with mostly greenish-gold on the obverse and glints of reddish-gold around a few of the sun's rays. Similar coloration and similarly stunning eye appeal are on display on the reverse, with a few tiny abrasions limited mostly to the sun at the bottom. The strike is close to full, despite minor softness on the sandal and a few of the oak leaves. The surfaces have no marks worthy of individual note. I have included an ms65 that sold in 4/18 for $33,600 and an ms65+ that sold in 1/12 for $48,875.
