Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: As would be expected from its low mintage, the 1913 Double Eagle is very scarce in most grades. In 1913 the world was very close to war and mintages decreased as gold stopped flowing over international borders. Most examples seen of the date are heavily bag marked. The date is also one of the few issues that is seen quite often in circulated condition. Obviously, not very many were saved by collectors. Very few have been graded at even the MS 65 level. NGC has graded 17 as MS 65, the last coin having sold for $34,500 at auction in 2009. Only one example has been certified as MS 66. Unfortunately, the coin has not appeared at auction or been seen in recent years. It would bring a block buster price if offered.
