From a population of 8 this beauty is tied for finest known PCGS example and is bested by only a single known Mint State specimen, a NGC MS60.

    Tough Gem!

    1922 $20 PCGS MS66

    Coins We Love
    Next Bid: $33,500.00
    Closes: 4D 11H

    The date of 1922 is a curious year. It's common, thanks to the mintage of 1.375 million, however it is not a date that preserved well. In fact, in gem grades (MS65) it rises in price, but in MS66, it becomes incredibly elusive. In fact, only 11 pieces are graded by PCGS as MS66 with only a single MS66+ graded higher. A tough date for the Saint collector, this piece is smooth with nice luster and the few marks in the field that you would expect for the grade.
