1907 $10 Wire Rim MS65 PCGS....
Roosevelt's admiration for the artistic talents of Saint-Gaudens has been publicized extensively and was a crucial factor in his decision to provide Americans with a more beautiful selection of circulating coinage. When polled as to one's opinion of our nation's most attractive coin designs, the top selections typically include the Saint-Gaudens eagle and double eagle issues of 1907. Cornelius Vermeule eloquently summarizes this fact in his Numismatic Art in America: "Both coins seem as modern a century after they were conceived as any issues, American or otherwise, produced in the past generation; and compared with what had been tolerated heretofore in the United States, both burst as skyrockets in the horizons of our academic creativity."
Pleasing red-gold coloration and pristine surfaces join to define this Gem 1907 Wire Rim ten. The strike is average for the issue, which is usually soft, and the characteristic swirling die polish lines accentuate the blazing luster throughout. Population: 43 in 65, 18 finer (5/08).
