1910-S $10 MS (PCGS# 8867)
Lot Number: 7744
Exceptional quality for this rare date and mint, with satiny luster spanning the entire surface. Close examination finds no bagmarks or handling lines aside from the lightest hints, and the eye appeal certainly approaches the gem grade. The color is a natural blend of lighter yellow-gold and orange-gold. Fully struck and impressive for the date collector. As a further note, the mintmark is triple punched, listed as Breen-7114, but not listed in <em>Cherrypickers' Guide</em>. The original mintage of 811,000 was virtually melted with perhaps a few thousand surviving today, at least half showing some degree of circulation.
