Lot Description
1909-S $10 MS64+ PCGS. CAC. The 1909-S Indian eagle is a median rarity in the series, from a mintage of 292,350 pieces. The issue is usually seen in lower Mint State grades, with most examples coming from a hoard that surfaced in the 1970s. Choice specimens are quite scarce, and Gems are rare and expensive, making this MS64+ example a desirable balance of quality and value. The present coin is a high-end Choice specimen, with well-detailed design elements and bright mint luster. the surfaces are vivid orange and rose-gold, with slightly granular texture. Only a few minor contact marks are evident. Population: 5 in 64+, 25 finer (3/12).
