Description & Analysis

With a mintage of nearly 350,000 coins, the 1893 double eagle is not a rare coin overall. However, uncirculated examples tend to have numerous bag marks and abrasions from mishandling. The average grade for this issue is somewhere between MS61 and MS62. MS63 examples are available, but this issue greatly thins out in choice. NGC has only graded a single example in gem. (9/2016)
