First Strike

| CERGRADER

I am curious about First Strike.What constitutes a first strike?How do you identify a first strike?How do you obtain a first strike, are they sold as such, are they only offered to certain people from the mint, or are they judged as such by a grader?I asked because I saw an enhanced first strike of a silver eagle that has Edwin Mos signature on the cover and it was GORGEOUS.Thank you.

| user_4542

This coin is considered one of the rarest in America. It is the second highest priced coin (behind the 1933 Double eagle). There were only 5 made. In 1913, when the government said this, people searched and searched for these. People searched their pocket change, what they had in their house, and probably their couch cusions. I was I was lucky enough to own one.

Great Author

Library | Longstrider

While reading a resent article in the ANA's Numismatist or was it a Coin World, I so enjoyed the article that I checked out the author. It was James R. Clifford. I researched him and found he also wrote a novel. It's called Double Daggers. I read the book and highly recommend it. It's a great read when you want to stay in the field of numismatics but need a break from pure facts. In short, the story follows the path of the Eid Mar coin. Though fiction there is a lot of historic fact inside. You might give it a try.
