1894 Liberty Eagle. MS-65 (NGC). Here is a condition rarity, a common date in lower Mint State grades, but one that becomes elusive at the Gem grade level. So, if a sharp-eyed collector is striving to acquire a top-flight example of this date, this is a significant one to consider. Gems seldom appear on the market, and the present piece exhibits a satisfying, bright honey-gold texture that is matched by glistening luster. The strike is very sharp, and only a few minor abrasions can be found on the surfaces. When all considerations have been made, this is a very attractive coin by anyone's standard.
