Expert Comments

David Akers (1975/88): This is the final year of this type and the last U.S. Eagle for 34 years. The 1804 is one of the rarer early Eagles, far more rare than such dates as 1795, 1797 Heraldic Eagle, 1799, 1801 or 1803 and also more rare than the underrated 1800. It is only a little less rare than the more touted 1798/7, 9x4 Stars and is about the same rarity as the 1796. All specimens that I have seen have poorly defined facial features on Miss Liberty, a characteristic that has probably resulted in the down-grading of some specimens offered for sale. The typical 1804 is fairly high grade, EF or AU, and a small number of strictly uncirculated examples are also known.
