Lot Description
1911-S $10 MS65 PCGS. In the challenging Indian Eagle series, the 1911-S is considered one of the premier rarities in top grades. Only 51,000 pieces were originally minted and, even after the appearance of a small hoard of 40-50 pieces in the late 1970s, the supply of Choice or better examples is extremely limited. This totally original 1911-S Ten Dollar displays a somewhat granular appearance, as is characteristic, and is very well defined for the issue. Dappled lilac and reddish-orange patina accents both sides and three pinpoint toning spots appear on Liberty's upper jaw. Population: 19 in 65, 8 finer (12/04). From The Gold Rush Collection.
