Description & Analysis

Although the Philadelphia Mint struck far more $10 gold eagles in 1884 than they did quarter or double eagles, this issue is still relatively rare today. Only 76,860 business strike coins were issued, along with a mere 45 proofs. Mint state examples are available, but tend to be found in the AU58 to MS61 range. Coins graded highers than that are very rare. Proof examples are extremely rare in all grades, as evidenced by the fact that NGC has only seen a total of 7 examples. (11/2016)
