Description & Analysis

1986 was the first year of the Silver Eagle series. The Mint was apparently testing different die preparation methods this year, as the mint state coins are often found in a multitude of different-looking finishes, including Proof-like as well as more matte examples.This date is relatively rare in MS70 with only 1.1% of those submitted to NGC attaining that grade. (7/2015) This date is much more attainable in MS70 than any date until the early 2000's, however.
