Description & Analysis

Although the original production was a substantial one approaching a quarter-million pieces, most of the 1897-S eagles circulated, and today the average grade, even of certified coins, is a bit less than Choice AU. Mint State examples are on the rare side, and most of them tend to be lower-Mint State examples.
