1908-S $10 MS66 NGC. The Congressional mandate of 1908 ...
The present Gem possesses all of the qualities that never fail to excite eager bidders. It is the first S-mint installment in this popular series and among the first With Motto issues. While the eagle's shoulder and talon, as well as Liberty's highest hair curls, exhibit characteristic incompleteness of definition, the balance of this coin is smartly impressed and quite crisply defined for the series. Although many of the 59,850 pieces that the west coast branch mint delivered in 1908 saw circulation, this gorgeous specimen was delicately preserved over the past ten decades. The frosty, orange-gold surfaces are smooth, although, for accuracy, we mention a somewhat distracting abrasion in the left obverse field that joins the bottom of star 1 to the tip of Liberty's nose. An important piece, we anticipate stiff competition for this specimen from the numerous gold specialists who will accept only the best for their prized collections. Population: 5 in 66, 2 finer (4/04). (#8861) (Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 28GL, PCGS# 8861)
