Online bidding has commenced and the live auction is slated for 10am EST in the Sotheby's New York City location. Just three items are slated to sold as part of the Stuart Wietzman "Three Treaures" sale. On offer are the unique plate block of the inverted Jenny 24-cent U.S. airmail stamp, the British Guiana 1-cent magenta and, of course, the infamous 1933 Saint Gaudens double eagle, which has been graded MS65 by PCGS, an opinion confirmed by CAC.

You can view the online Sothebys listings here.

I will follow up with my thoughts after the auction of the pricing results. You can also follow the Greysheet and CPG pricing of the 1933 Saint Gaudens on the Greysheet web site
