Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: As can be guessed from the extremely high mintage, most of the 1910–S Double Eagles were melted during the 1930s. Many of the survivors were shipped overseas to European or South American banks. One of the largest group of this date to surface was discovered in El Salvador during the early 1980s. Most if not all of the coins were Mint State, and the date can be easily found in all grades below MS 65. Most of the coins seen of this date are well struck with better than average surfaces. Gem examples are rare and quite popular as less than 100 have been graded by NGC as MS 65. Perhaps 7 to 10 Superb coins are known. The Eliasberg/Clapp coin is among the finest seen. There is one monster coin of this date known. A nearly flawless, MS 68 example surfaced in the Midwest in the late 1970s. I seem to remember it being handled by Joe Flynn, a major dealer at the time. The coin has not been on the market in years. It would certainly fetch a strong six-figure price.

NGC Price and Value Guides Disclaimer

Disclaimer: The prices listed in the various NGC Price and Value Guides are compiled from a number of independent, third party sources in the numismatic community which NGC believes to be reliable. Prices provided are averages, not specific prices for individual coins. Further, because these prices are only updated from time to time, they do not reflect short term pricing trends, which are quite common and are often quite dramatic, given the volatile nature of the collectible coin marketplace. This is especially true for rare coins, where there are fewer sales and greater variations in sale prices. For all of these reasons, the prices in these guides are designed to serve merely as one of many measures and factors that coin buyers and sellers can use in determining coin values. These prices are not intended, and should not be relied upon, to replace the due diligence and — when appropriate — expert consultation that coin buyers and sellers should undertake when entering into a coin transaction. As such, NGC disclaims all warranties, express or implied, with respect to the information contained in the NGC Guides. By using the NGC Guides, the user agrees that neither NGC nor any of its affiliates, shareholders, officers, employees or agents shall have any liability for any loss or damage of any kind, including without limitation any loss arising from reliance on the information contained in the Guides.
