The mintage for the 1898 double eagle is dramatically lower than for the other Philadelphia issues of the previous few years. The result is an issue that is much scarcer and seldom seen above MS-62. Collectors of previous generations would obtain a Proof example for the Philadelphia coinage and ignore the circulation-strike issues. The Smithsonian lacks an example of the 1898 double eagle for this reason. The 1898 issue is very rare in choice condition, and there are currently no known examples in gem Mint State.
