Description & Analysis

Despite a mintage of only 125,830 pieces, the 1903 eagle has little price pressure in most grades, since the issue has a high survival rate in Mint State. Still, it poses a significant challenge in better grades. As Garrett and Guth note, 'MS-63 examples are scarce but not rare. Several dozen MS-64 examples have been certified, but only a tiny handful of these coins have earned the coveted MS-65 designation.'
