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.
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.
