Lot Description
1914-S $10 MS64 NGC. Similar to other S-mint Indian tens, the 1914-S is a significant condition rarity. The 1914-S is occasionally available as a near-Gem, but it is rarely seen finer. Examples of this scarce issue are among the most attractive in the series. This piece displays noticeable granularity on the surfaces with a strong presence of mint frost. The yellow-gold color has taken on a slight accent of reddish patina on each side. The striking details are strongly brought up, and the coin lacks the usual abrasions this issue is known for. Census: 46 in 64, 15 finer (5/11). From The Little Rock Collection, Part Two.
