Lot Description
1911-S $10 MS66 PCGS. Ex: Duckor. Between NGC and PCGS, the two services have graded just 10 examples of this issue in MS66, with none finer (7/07). The vast majority (if not all) hail from a single repatriated hoard that dates to the late 1970s. Before that, this issue of just 51,000 pieces was considered virtually unobtainable, and even the appearance of several dozen Mint State examples only whetted collectors' appetites for the coins. This beauty offers fresh, coruscating luster and lavender-tinged yellow-orange surfaces that border on pristine. The devices are well struck overall, though a trace of softness appears at Liberty's central hair, and the visual appeal is stunning. An incredible representative that would add considerable cachet to a Registry collection.
