Lot Description
1912 $10 MS66 PCGS. On January 6, 1912, New Mexico joined the Union as the 47th state. Arizona followed on February 14 as the 48th, and the Mint increased the number of rim stars on the Indian Head eagle from 46 to 48 to commemorate the new Western states, making the 1912 and later coins technically a subtype within the series. The 1912, along with several other P-mint issues in the teens, is a well-produced and available type coin even in high Mint State grades, although its population figures in MS66 and MS67 are consistently slightly lower than the 1910, 1911, and 1913 pieces. PCGS has graded a mere nine pieces at the MS66 level and only one finer (6/08). This example offers lush, medium golden-yellow surfaces with deeper peach-gold on the highpoints. The radiant cartwheel luster equals that of many a flashy Morgan dollar, and singular distractions are expectedly absent. Amazingly appealing.
