The year 1907 proved to be a pivotal moment in the history of both the Double Eagle of the United States Mint in addition to the world of bullion coins. At the request of President Theodore Roosevelt, the highest legal tendered coin, “The Double Eagle” was to be redesigned in more striking detail. Hence, famed sculptor and designer, Augustus Saint Gaudens was tasked with adding an element of beauty to the $20 face value coin and improving on the previous design of James B. Longacre. St. Gaudens delivered by producing, what is considered by many to be the most beautiful bullion coins ever struck in US history.
Most reputable numismatic grading organizations use the internationally recognized Sheldon grading scale, which ranges from 1 to 70 to grade coin conditions. The MS-63 (which stands for Mint State with a 63 grade) is one of the highest scores a coin may achieve. It’s alternatively referred to as Choice Uncirculated.
