Description & Analysis

From the original 45-coin mintage, we believe that only about a dozen examples still exist today, although the number may be as high as 15 coins. At least one example, the Eliasberg-Trompeter specimen, is triple struck. The important of a proof Type Two double eagle cannot be overemphasized. The entire series was limited to just 11 years, and all are extremely rare in proof format. With 12 to 15 examples known, this 1876-dated double eagle is the most plentiful of any date in proof quality. We doubt that even 100 proof double eagles of this design type survive today, including all 11 dates.

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.
