United States, 20 Dollars, 1901-S

Description (Brief)
Mintage: 1,596,000
Although the mintage for the 1901-S double eagle is far higher than for the 1901 Philadelphia issue, the 1901-S coins are considerably rarer in choice condition. Low-grade to MS-62(mint state) examples are fairly abundant as a result of overseas shipments being repatriated in recent decades. Choice and gem examples are very rare. Just a few MS-65 or better pieces are known.
