Description & Analysis

The 1899 eagle is a high-mintage issue, produced to the extent of more than 1.26 million pieces. Garrett and Guth, in their gold Encyclopedia, write that the 1899 is a 'super-common date that can be found quite easily in all Mint State grades up through MS-64. Gem examples are 'money coins,' (i.e., with enough money, one can always find an example of this date.'
