$20.00 1911 $20 Gold Saint Gaudens Double Eagle - PCGS MS63 PQ

1911 dated Saint Gaudens Double Eagles are readily available but, compared to their Denver and San Fran sisters, the Philadelphia minted-issues are elusive with strong eye appeal.

This coin, Graded MS63 by NGC (Cert. No. 5869760-002), is a very nice example, shoe-horned into the MS63 grade, despite looking better.

With very nice uniform luster throughout, and no significant marks, it is difficult to see why this coin was denied a higher grade.
