Highly Attractive 1908-D Motto, MS66 PCGS

1908-D $10 Motto MS66 PCGS. Because of its rather hefty mintage of 836,500 pieces, this conditionally rare issue in the ten dollar Indian series has been traditionally underrated in Mint State. The '08-D Motto is seldom seen in mint condition and is almost never located in grades above MS 63. In MS66 condition, the grade of the coin offered in this lot, PCGS and NGC have certified a total of 8 coins, and only 7 grade higher.(9/05). Furthermore, our records indicate that a mere 4 specimens have made appearances at major auction sales over the past ten or so years, with 5 pieces grading higher.
This is a particularly well defined example that exhibits sharp detail on all of the design elements, a fine-grain texture in the fields, and soft, satiny luster with variegated orange-gold and lime-green color spread over each side. The surfaces are impeccably well preserved, with just a couple of minor marks hidden in the Indian's headdress. A small mint-made planchet flaw is located on the Indian's cheek, but does not distract. An outstanding example of this scarce issue. Population: 4 in 66, 3 finer (9/05).
From The Phillip H. Morse Collection of Saint-Gaudens Coinage.(#8860)(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 28GK, PCGS# 8860)

The Coinage of Augustus Saint-Gaudens is an issue-by-issue examination of these two artistically inspired series of gold coins. Each date and mintmark is reviewed with up-to-date information, much of which has never been previously published. The book is based on two extraordinary collections: The Phillip H. Morse collection and the Dr. and Mrs. Steven L. Duckor collection.
