The latest additions to the Newman Numismatic Portal are photos of Augustus Saint-Gaudens' personal Ultra High Relief double eagle. Project Coordinator Len Augsburger provided the following report.
U.S. Pattern Photo Sets on Newman Portal
Saul Teichman continues to build the U.S. pattern photo sets on Newman Portal and has developed extensive census data on the most important patterns in the U.S. series. The Ultra High Relief St. Gaudens twenty (Judd-1907 to Judd-1909) represents the most artistic work in the entire U.S. coin and medal series, and the Teichman file on this coin enumerates two examples of the Judd-1907 (edge lettered with stars in between letters), twelve of the Judd-1908 (plain edge), and five of the Judd-1909 (edge lettered with stars in between words). Especially noteworthy is Augustus Saint-Guadens' personal piece, currently in the Tyrant collection, with
ASG etched on the edge.
