Description & Analysis

At 86,895 pieces, the 1906-O eagle has a small mintage for a 20th century coin. Doug Winter reports a few pieces have surfaced in hoards in recent years, but this issue remains the rarest New Orleans ten dollar gold piece coined after 1900. Winter believes the surviving population of this date numbers between 400 and 500 pieces, with the majority of coins grading between AU55 and MS62. The issue becomes rare at the MS64 level and any coin in MS66 grade is a candidate for Condition Census.
