Type I Double Eagle, NGC MS-61 Premium Quality , Far
and few between is one way to describe appearances of
this date for sale. The vast majority of these coins
appear in much lower grades with an average in the Extremely
fine grade thru various about uncirculated grades. Very
very few uncirculated coins come up for sale and the
census shows a mere 20 coins graded as MS-61 with 15
graded higher. Factoring in duplications of submissions
and one can quickly surmise how rare this date really
is and the undervalued potential that exists as well.
Lovely uncirculated surfaces and bold strike adds to
the desirability of this coin which is certainly above
average and premium quality.
