This 1924 Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle is graded and certified MS62 by PCGS. In addition, the coin is housed in an older generation PCGS " Doily " Holder that has been approved by CAC!!
This lustrous coin will make a great addition to a Saint-Gaudens double eagle collection. Within a couple of years, a dealer got the bright idea to counterfeit the PCGS slab and make his own slabbed coins.
It worked for a little while, but he was soon caught. It was brought to the attention of PCGS (and the other services) that better security had to be used on their slabs so that if someone tampered with a slab, it could easily be detected. The newer slab had an outer ring and a hologram on the back. The label was printed with thousands of small dots on a dot matrix printer.The Doily label slab as we call it today was born but did not last for long. Made from August of 1989 through January of 1990, few of these samples survive. The Doily , so-called because of its intricate, doily-like anti-counterfeiting background, was produced for a short time between August 1989 and January 1990 before the design was discontinued due to problems with the labels bar code (the labels were printed in the Dot Matrix era). Thanks to their short production run, these holders are highly sought after by fans in the encapsulated coin market. CAC label placed on this holder denotes that this coin is premium quality according to the grading standards of CAC. CAC is an independent numismatic coin authentication service and is not connected with the grading service that graded and encapsulated this coin, or with any other coin grading service.
