David Akers (1975/88): In addition to being similar in appearance to the 1909, the 1910 is also similar in overall rarity to the 1909 except that it is somewhat more difficult to locate in MS-64 or better condition. True gems and even a few superb pieces do exist but they are considerably more rare than most people realize. Lumping this issue price-wise with the 1908 and the later dates is clearly a mistake based on the relative rarity of the issues.

The 1910 is rather similar in overall appearance to the 1909 except that the surfaces usually have a little more granularity and a bit less luster. The typical 1910 is well struck with good to very good luster and light to medium yellow gold color. Some examples show evidence of die buckling near the borders.
