Description & Analysis

With a mintage of over 1.8 million coins, the 1893 $10 gold eagle is a relatively common coin today.However, the majority of examples have numerous marks and abrasions from circulation. This is evidenced by the NGC Census, which shows most mint state examples fall in the MS62-63 range. The coin becomes scarce in MS64, and it is very rare in gem.
