Despite a large original mintage, the 1924-S Saint-Gaudens double eagle is scarce in all grades in today’s market, and Gems are major rarities. Most of the mintage was melted after the Gold Recall of 1933, rendering the official production figures irrelevant. Fortunately for present-day collectors, a number of coins were discovered in European banks, beginning in the 1950s, causing this and many other Saint dates to become more available. On the other hand, when collectors seek an MS65 example, they find the situation has changed little from the early days of the 1940s. That is because coins found in European holdings were subjected to the rigors of transport and storage with other large gold coins and few escaped without significant surface marks. The NGC population is just 19 with 2 higher.
