Description & Analysis

A year after over 6 million double eagles were struck in Philadelphia, the same mint only produced 58,919 $20 gold coins in 1905. As evidenced by the NGC Census, most of the coins that Philadelphia did strike went directly into circulation. The average grades seen by NGC range from AU58-MS62.
