Description & Analysis

While the 1893 half eagle and eagle each have mintages well above 1 million pieces, the Philadelphia Mint double eagle is a better date at the MS64 level. The mintage was less than 350,000 pieces, and although bagmarked Uncirculated examples are available, relatively few reach the MS64 grade.
