Description & Analysis

The Denver Mint struck its first coinage in 1906. Among those first coins struck were over 620,000 Liberty double eagles. It seems many of these coins were saved, as the coins are quite common through MS64. However, the number of survivors drops off considerably in gem. In fact, NGC has only graded a total of 15 coins in gem with a single finer piece known. (9/2016)
