1907 $10 Wire Rim MS63 PCGS....
Only 472 Specimens Distributed
Only 542 examples of the Wire Rim design were originally minted, and none were released into general circulation. The coins were distributed to VIPs, Treasury Department officials, President Roosevelt's inner circle, museums, and private citizens who ordered them. Apparently 70 examples were unsold and later melted, so the correct distribution figure for the issue is 472 pieces. Of course, collectors carefully preserved many examples, and the issue is not as rare as the tiny mintage would suggest. Still, the 1907 Wire Rim remains one of the most sought-after and valuable series issues.
The present coin is an attractive Select Mint State piece, with vivid greenish-gold surfaces. Because of the concave fields, all Wire Rim examples show sharp details on the central devices, but the peripheral elements tend to be softly defined. This can be seen on the date of this coin, which seems to fade away at the bottom of the digits. This piece displays strong, satiny luster and bold eye appeal.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 268B, PCGS# 8850)
