    Default Eagle luster

    Are older silver eagles different in appearance than newer?
    I just got some 1989 SAE that are shiny. I am accustomed to most recent SAE which are frosty. Are older ones frosty?

    Thanks,
    Bill

    The older ones 1986-90/91? are shiny, not frosty. I know 1990 is shiny, I'm not sure about the rest of the early nineties. No worries

    Many of the latter years have a frosted appearance. Except personal preference shiney or frosty means nothing.

    Thanks for the replies. I'll take them shiny or frosty as long as they were meant to be that way. This is not a matter of preference. I am concerned that the Eagles were polished and therefore damaged. They would still have the silver value, but Eagles have a premium and the premium would go down. There is large online vendor that offers damaged Eagles and includes polished ones in that category.

    One poster said they used to be shiny. That is what I needed to know.

    Yes, I have 3 complete Eagle sets, all the early coins are shiny. They look polished, but they aren't, just the way they were made.

    Until my knowledge grew, I thought they were fake. They are good, good coins.
