Lustrous 1908-D No Motto Eagle

1908-D $10 No Motto MS66 PCGS. The 1908-D No Motto ten dollar presents collectors with two significant obstacles. First, it is a difficult issue to locate in Mint State grades. Indeed, PCGS and NGC combined have certified around 550 Uncirculated examples, with most falling into the MS60 to MS62 range. Another 100 or so grade MS63 or MS64. Less than 20 Gem and Premium Gems are known, as are a mere three MS67 pieces. Second, this issue is considered to be one of the least attractive in the Indian Head ten dollar series. Walter Breen writes that it is weak in the centers, and often dull. Further, David Akers asserts that most specimens are flatly struck on the obverse and are lackluster.
The bidder that wins this particular coin will have largely surmounted both obstacles. It is one of the few MS66 examples known, and it exudes outstanding eye appeal. The design elements are sharply impressed, with just the hair at the Indian's ear and the eagle's left (right facing) talon revealing minor softness. Gorgeous orange-gold surfaces are laced with tinges of lime-green and radiate pleasing luster. Moreover, both sides have been impeccably preserved, revealing no blemishes worthy of mention. A singular mark concealed in the middle of the eagle's neck identifies the coin. Population: 5 in 66, 0 finer (3/06).
