1926 $20 St Gaudens MS64 PCGS Dropped R Mint Error

This is the first error of its kind that we've seen in our 35 years specializing in St. Gaudens Double Eagles and the only one we know of that might exist! "The Dropped R Variety" or any dropped letter for that matter is as unusual as it is fascinating to anyone who might specialize in a series and have the opportunity to add a Mint Error of this type to their set.

1926 $20 Saint Gaudens Double Eagle Mint Error, Dropped R PCGS MS64
 
This is the first error of its kind that we've seen in our 35 years specializing in St. Gaudens Double Eagles and the only one we know of that might exist! "The Dropped R Variety" or any dropped letter for that matter is as unusual as it is fascinating to anyone who might specialize in a series and have the opportunity to add a Mint Error of this type to their set.
 
How does this happen? According to specialists some die grease gets stuck in the die which then dries out and falls off while blank planchets are being struck. The hardened letter (in this case the letter R) lands on the blank and is literally struck into the surface of the coin.
 
In the case of this "Dropped R" it landed upside down created a very unusual Mint Error. We may be offering this Error too cheap! No one knows for sure, but we can say this, your set will stand out as far as we're concerned.
 
The Park Avenue Collection, awarded the Best New Set in the PCGS Registry in 2005 didn't have a "Dropped R" or any other "Dropped" letter Mint Error. Grab this while it lasts! It might be another 35 years before a similar Error is found if there is another one like this.
 
Opportunities like this do come around often and especially in the Saint Gaudens Series. We're  certain of one thing. This falls into the category called pride of ownership!
