Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: Similar to the 1922 Philadelphia issue, the 1923 Double Eagle suffered from the mass meltings of the 1930s, but more than enough survived in overseas hoards to keep it well within the ranks of any other common date. More than 30,000 examples have been certified and most show an attractive orange–gold color with strong luster. The striking quality is normally high for this date. The date is surprisingly available in MS 65 with more than 120 coins graded by NGC alone. Superb Gems are very rare and seldom offered for sale. The 1923 issue is also commonly found with large patches of copper discolorations. Some find these copper stains to be attractive, while others would decline to purchase such a coin.
