Description & Analysis

The U.S. Mint branch in San Francisco struck about 2 million less gold eagles in 1898 than double eagles. This much lower mintage is evident in the populations, which shows far fewer gold eagles graded by NGC, especially in mint state. In fact, NGC hasn't graded a single examples above MS64. (9/2016)
