Despite the appearance of multiple key-date coins from many series in our sales, this date is not such a coin. Virtually every Heritage Signature sale has multiple examples of the 1856 Flying Eagle Cent, the 1909-S V.D.B. cent, the 1916 Standing Liberty quarter, the 1893-S dollar, the 1911-D quarter eagle, and other rarities. For example, take a look through the present sale for these dates and others, and undoubtedly multiple examples of each will be found. However, the 1921 double eagle is too rare to fit the category of multiple opportunities. In fact, the last time we offered an example of this date was in November 2005 (in which we did have multiple examples), and in January 2005 before that. We have only offered this date 34 times in all of our sales dating to January 1993, only two or three examples per year.
This example is a brilliant, frosty, and lustrous representative with a few light surface marks on each side. All of the design elements on each side are nicely detailed. Light yellow-gold color is accented by specks of toning. The overall eye appeal is excellent, despite the grade limiting marks. Census: 13 in 61, 27 finer (7/06).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 26G2, PCGS# 9172)
