Lot Description
1912 $10 MS66 NGC. The 1912 is one of the more available issues of the type, and examples are readily obtainable through the near-Gem level of preservation. Gems are scarce, however, and Premium Gems fall into the rare category. Anything finer is virtually unobtainable. The slightly granular surfaces of this MS66 example yield ebullient luster and yellow-gold patina imbued with tints of light green. A solid strike manifests itself in strong definition on the design elements and close examination reveals just a few minute marks that are well within the parameters of the grade designation. Census: 17 in 66, 1 finer (11/09).
