Service: PCGS | Rating: MS 63
Unlike the Philadelphia issue of 1924, the Denver coins sat around in the United States, with perhaps a few thousand being sent overseas for international transactions. Therefore, when the 1930s rolled around they were still available to be turned over to the government and were promptly melted into gold bars and sent to Fort Knox. Survivors show strong
luster and average strikes, but many have worn dies around the peripheries, as quality control was lacking (perhaps caused by the enormous amount of coins that were minted).
To date, fewer than 1,000 examples have been certified, and a coin grading MS-64 is about as nice as a collector can hope to secure. Important auctions include the Carter/Duckor coin, which grades PCGS MS-66 and sold (November 2005) for $184,000; another example sold at the same time was a PCGS MS-65 piece that realized $74,750.
