Description & Analysis

The 1903 proof Liberty double eagle had the highest mintage of the entire series at 158 coins. That might seem like a decent amount considering the 20-30 proofs which were normally struck each year in the beginning of the series, However, the majority of these coins were likely lost to the numerous calamities and economic woes including two World Wars, the Great Depression, and the gold recall of 1933. It's likely that only perhaps a third of them have survived, and even fewer in high grade.
