Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: The 1928 Double Eagle is one of the most common of the series, which is no surprise considering the staggering mintage of almost 9 million coins. Ample numbers of coins have been certified in all grades from MS 60 to MS 67. The production quality for the date was high and the 1928 Double Eagle is an excellent type coin. The 1928 Double Eagle is the last readily obtainable for the Saint–Gaudens series. The remaining issues are all rare to extremely rare.
