Description & Analysis

An exceptionally rare and valuable eagle. In Akers' auction survey he conducted several years ago this issue was tied with several others for seventh place in rarity according to average grade, and it ranked in the top 25% of the series in overall rarity. While two AU examples were recorded in his survey, it was suspected that these coins would not hold up to today's grading standards as they were sold in 1968 and 1978.
