Lot Description
1916-S $10 MS64 PCGS. The 1916-S enjoys considerable fame within the ten dollar Saint-Gaudens series. It is a moderate rarity, in both absolute and conditional terms, that made its reputation between the 1930s and 1960s, when it was largely unavailable, before the emergence of two hoards in the 1970s that made it the last accessible San Francisco issue of the classic eagle denomination. This lovely near-Gem has reddish-gold color with subtle hints of lilac interspersed over the satin-frosted surfaces. Several small- to medium-sized marks scattered over each side account for the grade, but none are worthy of individual mention. Ex: The Little Rock Collection, Part Two (Heritage, 7/2011), lot 4996.
