The bold cartwheels of this honey-gold Denver Mint rarity support lively peach-rose iridescence and greatly enhance the already pleasing appearance. Marks are minimal and the strike is fairly bold throughout. As seen with the Choice Uncirculated 1924-D double eagle offered above, the mintage for the present date – 481,000 pieces – also belies its true availability. Those many coin dealer pioneers of yesterday who visited Europe time and time again seeking American rarities in bank bags of double eagles were successful beyond expectations in the eyes of collectors across the country. Many of today’s known 1926-D double eagles, a date that had been shipped to banks across the “Big Pond” in small quantities or stored in bags in larger quantities, owe their existence to dealers with sharp eyes and minds. In grades of EF-40 and above, the value columns in the Red Book – and other reliable sources -- reveal a five-figure upward spiral that increases steadily across the AU and Mint State grade range. There can’t be any down-side to playing steward to a Mint State-62 example of this rare date. Barring release of a previously unknown hoard – probably unlikely at this point in time – there is only a finite number of examples known of this date. The present MS-62 ’26-D is a perfectly acceptable specimen with an excellent overall appeal.
