From a San Francisco mintage of 66,000 1913-S eagles, the offered example is pleasing orange-gold with adequate luster. The strike is average for this date, as a few of the peripheral letters or devices show a thin crease near the rims, a striking anomaly that affected certain issues from this series and Saint-Gaudens double eagle as well. This date and mint is one of the more challenging issues to find in Choice or finer condition, but is available for a price in lower Mint State, or even circulated grades. A splendid example to represent this date and mint.
