Seldom-Seen Gem 1909-D Eagle
Akers: 'Rare in MS64'

1909-D $10 MS65 NGC. Serious collectors of the 1909-D Indian Head eagle know the 1909-D issue for the rarity that it is. The second edition of the Akers Handbook notes that even MS64 examples are rare, and "Gems number no more than 15 coins." A quick check of the NGC and PCGS population data shows five submissions at NGC in Gem grade with three finer, while PCGS shows three in MS65 with six finer -- 17 submissions total at both services combined (10/11). This Gem NGC-certified piece shows a satiny texture over surfaces that exhibit a pronounced, even reddish color overall, intermingling with a hint of green around the obverse margin. As expected of the grade, the strike is sharp and there are no obvious signs of contact.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 28GN, PCGS# 8863)
