Country of Origin:USA Condition:Mint Year:1907 Description:1907 Liberty $20 PR64 Cameo NGC. Only 78 proof double eagles were struck in 1907 the final year of the Liberty design. Production of business strikes continued well into the year and it wasn't until November that the 1907 Saint-Gaudens twenty made its appearance. The somewhat lower mintage of proof 1907 twenties the lowest output in fact of the 20th century can perhaps be eplained as being the result of anticipation for the debut of Saint-Gaudens design. An educated estimate based on auction appearances and population data places the number of survivors to be in the range of 45-55 pieces. Both Breen and Akers in their notations on 1907 proof twenties make a point of mentioning that of the known survivors many are impaired or somehow damaged and that 2-3 pieces are impounded in museums further reducing the number of collectible specimens. Offered here is a wonderfully preserved specimen with a veil of warm orange-gold patina over each side. Considering the era in which it was struck the deeply mirrored fields offer eceptional contrast against the rich mint frost on the devices. While essentially free from hairlining inspection with a glass identifies a solitary luster graze down Liberty's cheek a disturbance that is virtually undetectable to the naked eye. All in all one of the more appealing 1907 proof twenties we have offered. Population: 7 in 64 3 finer (12/06).Certificate No.: 655416-003 NGC
