Expert Comments

David Akers (1975/88)

The 1927 is the second most common Saint-Gaudens double eagle after the 1924. It is readily available in relatively large quantities in MS-64 or lower Mint State grades and even full gems are readily available at any time. I have seen numerous pieces over the years that have graded better than MS-65, and there are even a few around that could reasonably be termed vitrually perfect.

The 1927 is one of the most attractive issues of the series in terms of lustre, color and overall appearance. The average 1927 generally has more "eye appeal" than the typical 1924, 1925 or 1926 and is matched in this respect only by the 1923-D and 1928. Most examples are very sharply struck with fully frosty or soft satiny surfaces. Many have slightly rounded rims. The lustre and color are usually excellent to outstanding, and the color is most often a rich greenish or yellow gold.
