Description & Analysis

With a mintage of only 111,430 pieces, one would expect this date of Liberty double eagles to be very expensive in higher grades. However, a hoard of superb quality 1901 double eagles were released in the 1990's. This had made the 1901 one of the most obtainable coins in the entire series.
