Lot Description
1911-S $10 MS64 PCGS. In the series of ten dollar Indians, the 1911-S was once considered on par with the elusive 1911-D. Even after the appearance of a small hoard of 40 to 50 pieces in the late 1970s, high grade examples such as this piece remain elusive, and the average grade encountered is about AU55. This is one of only 25 MS64 pieces so graded by PCGS, with 27 finer (8/06). The granular surfaces show thick mint frost and rich, deep reddish-gold color. A few shallow marks are noted on the primary obverse device, but the reverse is remarkably free from disturbances. Certified in a green-label holder.
