Stack's Bowers Auction The January 2013 Americana Sale Jan-2013 CAC 1908-D Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle. Motto. MS-67 (PCGS). CAC. This is one of the five currently finest-known 1908-D Motto double eagles, at PCGS and NGC combined, a stunning example with absolutely exquisite eye appeal. The satiny surfaces display lovely yellow-gold color, highlighted on the obverse by copper-red accents around the rays, Liberty's hair, and the central high points. The reverse is also a lustrous yellow-gold, with hints of muted copper-red around the eagle's rear feathers. The devices are boldly struck, even on areas that are often weak, such as Liberty's face and torch, her left foot, and the eagle's breast feathers. The Capitol building, the rock, and the leaves are all razor-sharp. A couple of minute marks are noted on Liberty's breast, for the sake of accuracy. Bidding activity is likely to be intense, when this magnificent coin crosses the auction block.
