Value of 1909/8 St. Gaudens $20 Gold

There are two significant varieties known of this date, the 1909/8 St. Gaudens and the 1909 normal date. The overdate usually has minor lack of detail to the high points of Libertys portrait, although the typical Mint State survivor is lustrous with either a satin or frosty texture. Most examples possess significant surface abrasions.
As the only overdate in the Saint-Gaudens double eagle series, the 1909/8 enjoys strong collector demand at all grade levels. Although the mintage of this issue seems to have been fairly evenly split between the 1909/8 and the 1909 normal date, the overdate is a bit more plentiful in todays market. This variety is scarce, yet obtainable in grades through MS-63. Near-Gems in MS-64 are very scarce while Gems are nothing short of rare. Neither PCGS nor NGC has certified an example finer than MS-66.
