Incredible 1909-D Indian Eagle, MS66

1909-D $10 MS66 PCGS. Duckor Collection. The 1909-D ten dollar gold piece is a lower mintage (121,540) date and a rarity in the series. Jeff Garrett and Ron Guth alluded to the importance of this issue in their Encyclopedia of U.S. Gold Coins: "The coins of this date are quite rare and not appreciated in Gem grades. They exhibit average to below-average strikes and lack the explosive luster seen on earlier dates. Few Gem coins survive, and this date currently ranks as the eighth most difficult issue to obtain in MS-65 or finer grades."
A few lower Uncirculated examples of the 1909-D have come onto the market in recent years. This has increased the total number of Mint State pieces, but has had no effect on coins at the upper-end of the coins known.
It is important to understand that this example breaks all the rules concerning the typical appearance of the date. This Premium Gem specimen is stunning. Each side is accented by gorgeous rose-gold and pale olive color. A few of the better known examples have radiantly lustrous surfaces, as seen here, but most 1909-D tens have only average mint luster. This is among the finest known of this scarce issue. We recently have also offered the MS66 Kutasi specimen, but it is typically every two or three years that a single high quality piece such as this coin is offered. A review of the PCGS Set Registry for Indian eagles shows that this beauty would improve each and every one of the current top ten sets! Population: 5 in 66, 2 finer (6/08).(Registry values: N10218) (NGC ID# 28GN, PCGS# 8863)
