View Full Version : Frosty Silver Eagle

Silver Tiger

I picked up a 2001 American Silver Eagle last weekend from a local dealer and instead of having a mirror finish, it has a frosty/hazy finish to it. Would this be tarnishing or was the coin cleaned incorrectly?

Most of the post 2000 silver Eagles I have seen have a frosted finish. The mint changed something. A lot of folks don't like the looks of the frosted eagles nearly as much as they like the shiney surfaces struck in the '80's & 90's.

There is no difference in value.
