With Motto 1908 Saint-Gaudens Ten, MS67
1908 $10 Motto MS67 NGC. Unlike the more famous No Motto-With Motto pairing of 1908 double eagles, in the eagle denomination With Motto Saint-Gaudens pieces of 1908 are more accessible in general than their No Motto counterparts, thanks to greater mintages. While there was an apparent drive to produce as many No Motto 1908 double eagles as possible before Congress passed a law forcing IN GOD WE TRUST on the Saint-Gaudens twenty dollar design, such was not the case for the ten dollar.
For the Philadelphia issue, while it is considered fairly generic through the lowest Mint State reaches, it begins to command a premium over type at the Select level. Garrett and Guth state that "as a date the 1908, With Motto comes very nice and is most of the available dates in gem grades." Nonetheless, the date's price premium steadily grows with increases in grade until the date becomes quite rare in MS66.
Offered here is a gorgeous Superb Gem. Garrett and Guth note the issue is "usually found with satiny luster and a sharp strike," a definition that fits the piece perfectly. It is well-defined with remarkably smooth features on Liberty. Bold yellow-gold luster swirls across each side in magnificent cartwheels, and the faintly textured surfaces show only a few minor disturbances. The all-around eye appeal is simply magnificent. An incredible opportunity for the dedicated collector of Saint-Gaudens ten dollars. Census: 5 in 67, 3 finer (11/10).
