Description:
Important Premium Gem 1907 Wire Rim Ten Dollar
1907 $10 Wire Rim MS66 PCGS. This is a simply extraordinary 1907 Wire Rim Eagle whose surfaces are overlaid in rich, satiny luster. Random striations from die polishing are seen in the fields, particularly on the reverse, features that attest to the fact that great care was taken in the production of these coins. The soft, frosted surfaces are primarily yellow-gold in color, with suggestions of delicate green patina accenting the obverse. Even the major design elements are essentially void of handling marks, however, a couple of small abrasions are noted in the right reverse field. A spectacular piece from both numismatic and artistic vantage points and a coin that no gold collection would be complete without.
The Wire Rim Eagle is the closest the Philadelphia mint came to reproducing the Ten Dollar design as originally conceived by Augustus Saint-Gaudens and Theodore Roosevelt. The wire rim feature on this design is the result of metal being forced between the collar and the dies during striking. Potential complications in the minting process when applied to mass production and other impracticalities resulted in an immediate alteration of the original design. A Premium Gem representative of this rare and important transitional issue. Population: 11 in 66, 3 finer (11/05).(Registry values: N10218) (NGC ID# 268B, PCGS# 8850)
