Description & Analysis

The 1988 Silver Eagle is the 3rd issue of the series. It saw a dramatic decrease in mintage from the 11+ million minted in 1987 to a rather paltry by comparison 5 million in 1988. This date is rarely rewarded the grade of MS70 by NGC, with only 0.38% of those submitted attaining that grade. (7/2015)
