1907 $10 Rolled Edge MS62 PCGS. CAC....
Philadelphia Mint Superintendent John Landis ordered the melt due to inferior quality, and his decision was supported by incoming Mint Director Frank Leach over the objections of Assistant Treasury Secretary John Edwards who ordered the coins to be released. Looking at the survivors today, the inferior quality is not immediately recognized, and it is certainly possible that Charles Barber, who had a professional jealousy of Saint-Gaudens, convinced Landis that the coins were unacceptable.
The present specimen is somewhat weak on the highest design points, but it possesses satiny luster with excellent light yellow and pale orange surfaces. Considerable die polish is evident in the fields on both sides. The surfaces are essentially mark free. (Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 268C, PCGS# 8851)
