After the outbreak of the War in 1914, double eagle coinage at Philadelphia continued a slump that culminated in no gold coinage at all from 1917 to 1919.
Recent research by Roger Burdette estimates that most of the 1913 double eagles known today originated in European holdings and show the heavy bagmarks typically associated with European bank transactions.
Most of the high-grade pieces extant are thought to have come from South America in the 1960s or '70s, where frequent jostling in bags was less of an epidemic.
Burdette estimates that about 5,700 1913 double eagles are known in all grades.
These are largely in the MS61 to MS64 grade range with a quantity of high-end AU pieces.
Gems are distinguished rarities.
