1923-D $20 MS67 Certification #06666175, PCGS #9176

Expert Comments

David Akers (1975/88)

The 1923-D is one of the most common issues of the series and is easily the most common branch mint issue Saint-Gaudens $20. The issue is readily available, and in quantity, in all grades up to and including MS-65. Above the gem level, a fairly substantial number of specimens exist and I have seen quite a few (by Saint-Gaudens standards) exceptional specimens of nearly perfect quality.

Without a doubt, the 1923-D is one of the most consistently attractive issues of the entire series. Even middle grade Mint State pieces generally have excellent "eye appeal" and MS-64 or better pieces rank right at the top of the Saint-Gaudens list in terms of overall appearance. The typical 1923-D is frosty, fully struck and highly lustrous. The color is invariably excellent, almost always rich orange or coppery gold, often with greenish gold highlights.
