Lot Description
1940-S 10C MS68 Full Bands PCGS. Even though 21.5 million pieces were struck of this issue, there are only four pieces that have been certified MS68 by PCGS and NGC with none finer (4/03). That's a surprisingly low percentage of high grade survivors for the issue. This is a virtually perfect coin that requires strong magnification to pick out any imperfections. The surfaces have sparkling mint luster that is silvery-gray overall and encircled on both sides by deep russet toning.
