Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: This date is very popular as the third lowest mintage Double Eagle after the 1907 High Relief and the 1908–S. Other dates are much rarer as quite a few of this issue’s low mintage survived. For some reason, a significant number were saved; these probably sat out the first half of the century in European or South American bank vaults. The 1913–S is a classic condition rarity. NGC has graded 215 MS 64 examples, but only 8 as Gem MS 65. The price for this issue soars at the highest levels. Only one MS 66 coin is known for the date. It was at one time part of the famous “Dallas Bank” collection.

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.
