During the 1900s the Philadelphia Mint produced some beautiful Double Eagles. The mintages were generally abundant, and one result was that the dies often kept their die polish for much of the production run.
The mintage from 1904 is 6,256,699 so not all of the Mint State coins were created equal. One result of this was that it became difficult for many people to tell the difference between a Proof and a Proof-Like coins. Frame what Im trying to say this way.They struck over six million but NGC has graded less than 400 coins in all PL (Proof like) grades! A rarity that flies under the radar! The incredibly low Proof production of this 1904 issue is only 98 coins with less than 55 thought to survive. Over 100 years later, the 1904 gold Double Eagle proof is rare in all grades. They are generally worth 7 times more.
Proof Like coins represent a great way to own a beautiful, flashy rarity at a fraction of the cost of owning a proof coin.
