Lot Description
1908-S 10C MS66 NGC. Like many branch mint issues in this conditionally challenging series, the 1908-S is deceptively rare as a Gem for a coin with a respectable original mintage of 3.2 million pieces. At the MS66 level, NGC reports a mere three examples, and there is a lone MS67 specimen finer (2/03). Richly toned in dominant charcoal-gray shades, this coin also reveals blushes of reddish-orange and golden-blue patination in and around the central obverse. Neither the sharp strike nor the smooth surfaces are worthy of criticism. From the Bay Area Collection.
