HUGE COIN RARITY DISCOVERY – Wrongly Added W Mint Mark 2021-W $10 Gold Eagles Found By Coin Dealer!!

PCGS broke the news that there are some Type 2 Added W Mintmark $10 American Gold Eagles (1/4 ounce) that are business strike but bear the proof dies… essentially, they are unfinished proof coins that should never have had the W Mintmark. In the past, the government has purposely created W-Mint quarters and other special coins that were supposed to be somewhat scarce, but these are a complete accident – or so we've been told – and are very reminiscent of the Close AM / Wide AM mishaps or Type B Washington Quarters, but this (I believe) will be more significant due to the extremely-obvious nature of the occurrence. Let's break it down… excited to see what ends up happening here.
