1894 S $20 MS

Description & Analysis

The 1894-S gold double eagle had a mintage of over a million coins. However, the majority of those entered circulation where they were well used. Some were even sent to Europe where they obtained even more wear or were even melted. Due to this, most survivors tend to be in the low mint state range of MS61-62. This issue is a very rare find in choice, and is exceedingly rare in gem.
