It would be desired a bit more?
Worth buying one ungraded?

j/k Honestly, I have no idea!
Surprisingly the 08 with motto is neck and neck in line with the 08 no motto until you get up in the 66-67 range where it takes a dramatic jump up…… Thing is with these, there really isn’t any way to know how many survived the melt that happened in 1933 so the lower mintage figures aren’t as much of a price driver as with other series.
From a reliable dealer....with a return policy.....maybe.
Otherwise, be careful. But the 1908 w/Motto isn't a high-target for counterfeits.
It's still under $2000.
I'll probably just be a watcher, I've already helped the high bidder spend an extra $100.
Reliable seller, not a dealer.
Their items as described by appraiser (cough cough) extra fine+
Bay seller, with bay return policy.
The missing left arm is a little troubling (the seller isn't the best photographer)
Then there is the question...is that a weak D that I see there where the mint mark would be?
is worrisome. I think the "D" is pareidolia, based on my own extensive experience spotting "D"s on quarter eagles that don't actually have them.
The coin sold for $2476.
$25 shipping...hope the buyer didn't have to pay taxes, then add in shipping insurance costs and yeah too rich for me.
I was a player at $1800, but talked myself out of it rather quickly.
I popped into the local G&S store and asked if he sees them come in.
Nope, he could order one from his sources, but cash upfront and still looking at $2000 and up.
seller a few months back they had a big bulk sale with Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle no motto $1700 now it's a bit higher. they have a newsletter.
In MS-63, 1908 NM's are basically bullion subsitutes.
That's perfect for a type collector or someone on a tight budget looking for a good example that's mint state with no particular attributes.
I agree. I believe just LIBERTY and the country should be the minimums. It was a Civil War thing that certain segments of society later latched onto. We should go back to what this country started with, obverse of Lady Liberty, Liberty, date, and United States of America. Simple statement of our desire for freedom for all.
