Lot Description
1909-D $10 MS65 NGC. The 1909-D ten dollar is an underrated and overlooked issue. Only 121,540 pieces were struck, and few were preserved in high grade. Gems such as this piece are notable condition rarities with only eight examples certified by both major services combined (6/11). This coin is frosty and granular, as usually found, but the most notable aspect of the surfaces is their originality. Both sides exhibit hints of pale lilac interspersed with the otherwise reddish-gold color. The striking details are strong throughout, and there are no reportable abrasions. Census: 5 in 65, 3 finer (5/11). From The Little Rock Collection, Part Two.
