Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: The mintage for the 1922 issue soared above the levels of 1921 and many, many more have survived. The date is quite common in all grades from MS 60 to MS 64. Over 65,000 pieces of the 1922 Double Eagle have been certified. The strike for the issue is somewhat shallow and bag marks are a persistent problem for the issue. They must have been stored and handled quite roughly over the years. Gem examples are rare and not easily found. Very few have been graded as MS 66 and none as MS 67. An NGC MS 66 coin sold for $14,375 in 2009.
