Frosty rose-orange surfaces are silent on the subject of even trivial distractions. The strike is expectably sharp for a 1910-D Indian eagle, and the eye appeal is superior in a Mint State survivor of this conditionally challenging and often noticeably abraded type. Among the finest examples of the date seen thus far by PCGS -- the number of MS-66 examples of the date listed by that firm leads us to believe some resubmissions have occurred in the never-ending search for one more grading point. Gem quality without reservations.<br />
<strong>Numismatic Reflections by Q. David Bowers</strong><br />
Indian eagles in Superb Gem Mint State are generally only available of a handful of dates and mintmarks, with 1907, 1926, and 1932 being the most plentiful. The 1910-D offered here is a rarity in the context of the demand for this issue. The present piece is attractive and will be just right for an advanced specialized collection.
