Lot Description
1911-S $10 MS64 PCGS. The instantly appealing surfaces provide a visual treat, in the form of gorgeous luster awash over the reddish-gold surfaces. Although a few small abrasions preclude a Gem grade, they fail to dampen enthusiasm for the piece. While Walter Breen (1988) reported that Uncirculated survivors are "mostly from a small hoard said to number 60 pieces, found in the Philippines ca. 1976," Garrett and Guth more recently said, "This date was virtually on par with the rarity of the 1911-D issue until the discovery of a small hoard in Europe in the 1970s." Population: 28 in 64, 28 finer (3/08).
