Legend Rare Coin Auctions Auction The Regency Auction 30 Jan-2019 Ex. ELIASBERG/DUCKOR/A&A Legend Rare Coin Auctions is proud to have been consigned what is most likely the FINEST 1909-D in existence! Having built the #1 (Simpson) and #2 all time finest sets, we have seen as many or more Saints than anyone. We cannot imagine a finer 1909-D nor have we even seen anything remotely close. For sure it has been safely stored since it left the Mint. Even common dates cannot be found this mega monster clean. We used a strong glass and looked really hard and found only one microscopic tick. That is unheard of for any GEM Saint. The surfaces have a remarkably satiny smooth texture. Of course there is a full booming all over luster. Mother Nature teamed up with the US mint to create a colorful masterpiece here. Both sides are totally original gold/orange gold/yellow gold color. There is not a single speck, spot, or discoloration. Miss Liberty and the details are fully struck and are frosty. The eye appeal is jaw dropping! PCGS 2, NGC 1, CAC 1. We have never seen the other piece. Simpson only has a MS66+. The last record of any MS67 1909-D selling in auction was for a non CAC which brought $218,500 in 2008. The current Collectors Universe Value is $425,000. If you buy better Saints or are building a world class set, there is no way you won't make this a "must buy" after you see it. We do claim this coin to be a once in a generation piece. Good luck bidding as we expect many players to come out. Cert. Number 30433192 PCGS # 9152
