Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: This date is very popular as the third lowest mintage Double Eagle after the 1907 High Relief and the 1908–S. Other dates are much rarer as quite a few of this issue’s low mintage survived. For some reason, a significant number were saved; these probably sat out the first half of the century in European or South American bank vaults. The 1913–S is a classic condition rarity. NGC has graded 215 MS 64 examples, but only 8 as Gem MS 65. The price for this issue soars at the highest levels. Only one MS 66 coin is known for the date. It was at one time part of the famous “Dallas Bank” collection.
