Lot Description
1926 $10 MS66 PCGS. The 1926 is one of the most familiar type coins in the Saint-Gaudens eagle series, a beneficiary of overseas repatriation. Yet the journey to Europe and back took a toll on most known survivors, and while Gems of the date are available for a price, this is one of just nine MS66 coins certified by PCGS with none finer (10/10). The present Premium Gem has vibrant yellow-orange luster with copper spots to the left of Liberty's chin and in the upper and left lettering on the reverse. In terms of marks, the well struck devices are effectively distraction-free.
