Description & Analysis

One would hardly expect a late-date Coronet double eagle with an original mintage of more than 1.5 million pieces to elicit much enthusiasm among bidders when it crosses the auction block. Informed collectors, however, realize that this stereotype cannot be used to label the 1901-S, at the near-Gem level of preservation.
