Mintage: 3,877,260

Type: 6f

Recommended Grade: MS60 or MS61

The 1881 has the highest mintage of any Liberty Eagle, although it is not as common as the 1901-S in higher mint state grades.

So, it is not surprising that some varieties exist. One has an ostensibly doubled die reverse. Another has a raised dot with the upper loop of the second '8'. A third variety has a die chip within the eagle's beak.
