Description & Analysis

In the mid-1860s, the Philadelphia Mint annually produced only minimal numbers of eagles. Since gold coins did not circulate except in the far west, and double eagles were preferred for export and reserve purposes, mintages of the remaining gold denominations were limited. The 1865 has a typically minuscule production of 3,980 business strikes, along with just 25 proofs. The 1865 is also noteworthy as the final No Motto Philadelphia issue. Although gold coins did not circulate for more than a decade after the Civil War, most 1865 eagles eventually did enter commerce, since every grade between Fine 12 and AU58 is represented by at least one NGC or PCGS example.

NGC Price and Value Guides Disclaimer

Disclaimer: The prices listed in the various NGC Price and Value Guides are compiled from a number of independent, third party sources in the numismatic community which NGC believes to be reliable. Prices provided are averages, not specific prices for individual coins. Further, because these prices are only updated from time to time, they do not reflect short term pricing trends, which are quite common and are often quite dramatic, given the volatile nature of the collectible coin marketplace. This is especially true for rare coins, where there are fewer sales and greater variations in sale prices. For all of these reasons, the prices in these guides are designed to serve merely as one of many measures and factors that coin buyers and sellers can use in determining coin values. These prices are not intended, and should not be relied upon, to replace the due diligence and — when appropriate — expert consultation that coin buyers and sellers should undertake when entering into a coin transaction. As such, NGC disclaims all warranties, express or implied, with respect to the information contained in the NGC Guides. By using the NGC Guides, the user agrees that neither NGC nor any of its affiliates, shareholders, officers, employees or agents shall have any liability for any loss or damage of any kind, including without limitation any loss arising from reliance on the information contained in the Guides.
