Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: Like most other Philadelphia issues from this period, a significant number were saved in European banks and have since made their way back home. This date is one of the most common issues in the series. The 1926 Double Eagle can be found in all grades of Mint State through MS 66. Less than 10 coins have been certified as MS 67. One in that grade sold for $14,950 in 2008.
