Description & Analysis

Just 75,955 circulation strike 1890 Double Eagles were produced. Until a few years ago, this was a very rare issue in Uncirculated condition. A few small groups of MS60-62 examples have entered the market, making it relatively easy to obtain a presentable 1890 Double Eagle today. However, it remains rare in MS63 and very rare in any higher grade.
