On eBay, collectors can find any number of PCI-encapsulated silver American Eagles with intense target toning.
Also, do not overpay for these pastel splendors. Some eBay sellers are asking $1,000-plus for a PCGS crossed-over American Eagle. That’s too much. You should be able to pick up a similar one at auction or a coin show for about $100. Key dates and varieties, of course, will run more.
Avoid any PCI-encapsulated silver American Eagles that contain blotches in the toning. The key is to get seamless circular toning with no spots, blotches or fingerprints.
