Ross Allen Johnson (2020)
Together we will explore the universe of rare yet affordable Saint Gaudens Double Eagle Die Varieties; the "final frontier" in the study of this remarkable series. This talk will include a brief overview of the ways the series has been traditionally collected, why its die varieties have largely been overlooked, and how new and improved resources are poised to generate fresh discoveries, interest, excitement, and fun for series enthusiasts and studious numismatists alike. We will conclude with a coin by coin review of the most interesting and noteworthy examples and reflect on the opportunities they afford the casual or serious collector of these fabulous coins. Presenting: Ross Allen Johnson, ANA life member and lifelong coin collector. This presentation was part of the 2020 Newman Numismatic Portal Sympsosium, held virtually, August 28-30, 2020.
