This 2007 W Burnished Silver Eagle is an example of an overlooked part of Silver Eagle history. This Silver Eagle was the last mintage with the original reverse before the U.S. Mint made modifications to the design in 2008. Some error coins exist with the 2007 reverse on a 2008 coin, and those errors go for thousands of dollars!
Burnished Silver Eagles are the rarest finish in the series, as the minting process to create the special burnished finish is very intensive so few are minted each year. This piece has a perfect MS70 grade from NGC, as well as a label signed by the Honorable Mike Castle, the Coinage Congressman! During his tenure in Congress, he helped push through numismatic legislation like the creation of the Platinum Eagle bullion series in 1995. Only 545 2007-W Burnished Silver Eagles were signed by him with a perfect grade, so add this rarity to your collection while they're still cheap!
