Popular 1907 No Motto Ten Dollar Gold, MS64
1907 $10 No Motto MS64 PCGS. After Saint-Gaudens completed his work on the ten and twenty dollar gold coins, Charles Barber had the opportunity to modify them in the interest of easier production. This modified design was supposed to be an improvement to allow better characteristics of strike, however, examination of the presently offered specimen will demonstrate that the strike was virtually no different than the earlier Rolled Edge coins. Both varieties are characteristically weak at the center of the obverse, resulting from the placement of the highest design elements on the reverse.
The ten dollar Indian gold coins have an unusual edge device entirely different from the reeded edge that the public was accustomed to. These coins have raised stars on their edge, 46 through 1911 and 48 stars beginning in 1912.
This issue is among the more plentiful of all ten Indians and survives from a mintage of 239,406 coins. It remains to be considered that only a small percentage of these have survived in Choice or Gem Mint State grades. This is a splendid example of the initial production issue actually released for circulation. Some stories have suggested that Saint-Gaudens used his mistress, Davida Clark, as the model for this design. It is also interesting to note the similarities between the profile of this "Indian" on these ten dollar coins to the profile of Liberty on the Peace dollar, said to be modeled by Anthony DeFrancisci's wife.
Sharply struck, again with the exception of the very center of the obverse, which has some weakness. Both the obverse and the reverse have delightful yellow-gold luster with brilliant and frosty surfaces. An exceptional example for the grade, and deserving of careful consideration for its quality.
