Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: Only a dozen examples of the 1933 $10 have been certified by NGC in all grades. The date is clearly the rarest and most popular date of the series. Although 1933 Double Eagles have been declared illegal to own in most cases, the legality of 1933 Eagles has never been questioned. Virtually the entire mintage was melted before leaving government hands. Owning an example of this date is certainly one of the highlights of any numismatic collection and a feat precious few collectors can ever hope to accomplish. The Smithsonian collection contains an MS 65 example. At one time the late, great collector Robert Kruthoffer owned the finest known example of this date as well. He sold his coin in 1981 for $79,000. It later was certified MS 66 by NGC and sold for $718,000 in 2004. Kruthoffer was clearly right, but way ahead of his time!!
