According to our records, the last and ONLY 1930S we ever handled came to us when we purchased the Dr. Crawford Saint Collection in 06/2004 (which we resold intact to a collector). Do NOT let the pops fool you, these are rare-especially if they have a CAC green bean!
At first glance, this pieces looks like any common date. Nothing more than a few tiny ticks are scattered about. The surfaces are slightly satiny and emit a surprisingly strong boom luster. We grade the reverse MS64.8+. There is one teenie light pinpoint stain (below the T in Liberty), but NO spots or discolorations mixed in with the light two tone orange/deep gold colors. Miss Liberty and the details are frosty and are well struck. The eye appeal is great!
If you think CAC is tough on common dates Saints, be assured, they are harder on these more expensive dates!
PCGS 18, NGC 4, CAC 2. PCGS has possibly graded 12 coins higher (we doubt if all of them will CAC).
Auction records reveal this coin (we believe its this coin) last sold for $149,500.00 to a dealer in the 05/2008 Goldberg sale. Prior to that, a similar coin sold for $152,375.00 09/07 Goldberg. We do NOT remember ever seeing this date and grade offered at shows either. You know they do not show up in every auction either! If you are building a great Saint Collection, then this is a piece you surely do not want to miss!
