Description & Analysis

The New Orleans Mint struck its final coinage in 1893. This included 18,402 double eagles. Those that have survived until today often tend to be in the AU58-MS62 range. Above MS62, this issue becomes very hard to find. NGC has only graded a single piece in MS64, with none higher. (9/2016)
