Many of America’s finest coins will appear in our upcoming New York City Rarities Auction, held in conjunction with Sotheby’s the day following our sale of Part I of the incredible D. Brent Pogue Collection. The 1909 Satin Proof eagle in the sale, from the design type by Augustus Saint-Gaudens struck 1907 through 1933, is a rare bird indeed. Graded Proof-67+ by NGC, a quality level that is only exceeded twice, once each by NGC and PCGS, the beauty offered in New York City rivals any and all Satin Proofs of the date for quality and eye appeal.

Struck in 1909 and 1910 across the denominations, the satin Proofs were a distinct change from the Matte or Sand Blast Proofs of the series. A fully struck specimen, this 1909 Satin Proof eagle is as pretty as a picture. The coterie of serious Indian eagle collectors has grown in recent times, and acquiring this stunning world-class Gem Satin Proof 1909 eagle will be the goal of more than one dedicated specialist. If you mean to own this beauty, we suggest you consider these other potential buyers when deciding your bid. We wish you all great luck!
