Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: The 1912 is one of the more common of the early P Mint issues. The date is popular at the moment having just reached the 100 year milestone and issued the same year the Titanic sank. Most examples seen are well struck with yellow gold surfaces. Interestingly, the 1912 Eagle has two extra stars added to the rim for the addition of Arizona and New Mexico to the Union. Although several Gem examples are known, only two have been certified MS 67. The incredible Kuthoffer/Duckor example sold for $4,800 in 1981 and resold for $138,000 in 2006. Robert Kruthoffer would have been proud!
