Description & Analysis

San Francisco Mint production of Liberty Eagles in 1905 totaled 369,250 pieces. This mintage figure is on par with those of the 1902-S, 1903-S, 1906-S, and 1907-S, a fact that might trick some into labeling the '05-S as a 'generic' date. In reality, the 1905-S is a challenging coin to locate in all grades whose true rarity becomes evident when one crosses the Mint State threshold.
