1908-D $10 Motto MS67 NGC....
Garrett and Guth second Akers, noting that "Most [1908-D With Motto tens] are boldly struck and show ample luster, but few examples survived that have the unblemished surfaces required for the gem grade." Still, they advise that "For the serious and well-heeled specialist, this date can be obtained."
The occasional opportunity does arise, as the offering of this fantastic Superb Gem demonstrates. Its pale straw-gold surfaces are beautifully lustrous, and the devices are crisp throughout, with the detail on Liberty's hair particularly noteworthy. Even under close scrutiny, this coin does not show any but the most trivial of flaws. A truly remarkable Superb Gem that should find a home in a high-end cabinet. Census: 3 in 67, 1 finer (3/09).(Registry values: N1) (NGC ID# 28GK, PCGS# 8860)
