From an overall rarity standpoint, the 1894-O is among the scarcest post-1888 New Orleans eagles. IT was unavailable above MS62 until some pieces were found in Europe in the 1980′s and early 1990′s. It remains scarce in properly graded MS63 and it is very rare above this.

This coin has the look of a borderline Gem but it has been downgraded to its current MS63 level due to a small mint-made planchet flaw at the 89 in the date. The rest of the coin is exceptional for the issue with lovely frosty surfaces, great rose-gold and greenish-orange color and sharp details.

The last two PCGS MS63 examples to sell at auction realized $5,728 and $5,463 in 2013 and 2011, respectively.

I sold the only PCGS MS64 1894-O eagle for over $20,000 many years ago and it is likely than fewer than 10 properly graded MS63s exist.
