It's always a good day when NGC releases a new label designation! The Early Production designation is given to coins received by NGC in mint-sealed packaging that is dated on or before January 31 of the coin’s year of issue. So, every coin with this label was still sealed in its original mint packaging, showing it was from the first month of release! This label also applies to backdated coins, as long as they were sealed! That is how this 2013 American Silver Eagle received this brand new designation, despite being almost 8 years old. This specific Silver Eagle is even more interesting, because it was validated to have been struck in 2011 by NGC, despite having a 2012 date!
This special Silver Eagle was also struck in San Francisco, and has a near-perfect MS69 grade by NGC! To show this unique mintage off, it has been holdered in a special full color Golden Gate Bridge core. You'll want to look at this beauty all day long.
