Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: As can be guessed from the extremely high mintage, most of the 1910–S Double Eagles were melted during the 1930s. Many of the survivors were shipped overseas to European or South American banks. One of the largest group of this date to surface was discovered in El Salvador during the early 1980s. Most if not all of the coins were Mint State, and the date can be easily found in all grades below MS 65. Most of the coins seen of this date are well struck with better than average surfaces. Gem examples are rare and quite popular as less than 100 have been graded by NGC as MS 65. Perhaps 7 to 10 Superb coins are known. The Eliasberg/Clapp coin is among the finest seen. There is one monster coin of this date known. A nearly flawless, MS 68 example surfaced in the Midwest in the late 1970s. I seem to remember it being handled by Joe Flynn, a major dealer at the time. The coin has not been on the market in years. It would certainly fetch a strong six-figure price.
