1919-S 10C, FB MS (PCGS# 4927)
Lot Number: 7294
Bright pearlescent gray surfaces with abundant luster and eye appeal. The obverse has an arc of golden brown toning around the rims, while close inspection reveals blushes of pale blue. The reverse has soft champagne mottling and flecks of blue iridescence near the rim. Sharply struck from clashed dies, the telltale signs of which are easily seen on the obverse which has also cracked from stress. A sharp piece and nearly the top of the population reports with just three coins graded finer by PCGS. A fine Registry Set coin.<br /> <br /> <strong>Numismatic Reflections by Q.
