Lot Description
1911 $10 MS67 NGC. The 1911 Indian eagle claims a large mintage of 505,500 pieces, and high-grade examples are usually available, making the date quite popular with type collectors. Of course, the population dwindles above the Gem level, and Superb Gems are very rare. The present coin is an incredible Superb Gem, with razor-sharp definition on all devices, even the usually troublesome lower feathers. The pristine surfaces display attractive, even greenish-gold color, with vibrant mint luster on both sides. Currently, NGC has certified seven coins at the Superb Gem level, with only three examples finer, while PCGS has graded nine Superb Gems, with none finer (3/11).
