2017-W Silver Eagle "Blue Core" NGC PF70
On March 23rd, the Mint released the long anticipated 2017 version of the Proof American Silver eagle. Now that it is 'out', we can put to rest speculation about design changes and different rim treatments.
Ever since the Mint issued the 'Lettered 'Edge' Proof Eagle in 2016, rumor and speculation surrounded the release of 2017-W Proof Eagles. Now we know! The design reverted to the 2015 and earlier 'Reeded Edge', with the reverse design remaining the 'Heraldic Eagle' in use since 1986.
