Lot Description
1911-S $10 MS65 NGC. 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. Not only is this Gem '11-S Ten Dollar very well defined for the issue, but the characteristically granular surfaces show a thick mint frost and medium orange-gold color that is most pleasing. Population: 11 in 65, 2 finer (4/03).
