Expert Comments

David Akers (1975/88): The 1902-S, although not as rare overall as the 1901-S, is another very underrated date in full mint state. An Unc. 1902-S is certainly not the common date it is always pictured to be or that its Half Eagle and Eagle brothers are. Choice uncs are very scarce and true gems are surprisingly rare. In fact, the collector wanting a full MS-65 1902-S Double Eagle may be in for a very long search.
