Last of the San Francisco Eagles
Among Mint State coins, however, condition can be highly variable. Fuljenz later notes:
"Many 1930-S Eagles were roughly handled and as a result, the surfaces are often heavily abraded. It appears that a few small hoards have been found on which the surfaces are much cleaner and these pieces were probably not thrown loosely into bags as with other surviving examples."
Paradoxically, the 1930-S is more accessible in grades such as MS64 than several other issues with much higher mintages; nonetheless, it is a condition rarity any finer, and in any event, the date's overall rarity is well-established. This Choice coin is a perfectly lovely example, shining lemon-yellow with occasional green-gold overtones. A few small field disturbances, such as the two horizontal abrasions in the right obverse field, may preclude Gem status but have little impact on the overall visual appeal. Population: 37 in 64, 20 finer (11/10).
