1909-S Eagle, Elusive MS65
Well-Struck and Pleasing

1909-S $10 MS65 PCGS. Despite the discovery of a hoard of 60 coins around 1977, the 1909-S Indian eagle is still elusive in Gem condition, as most of the examples populating the treasure were in lower grades. Mike Fuljenz ranks the issue eighth overall within the series, calling it "rare" in Gem condition. This piece is one of 19 submissions at PCGS, which has seen seven finer (8/12). The surfaces boast deep, pleasing orange-gold color with gleaming luster and a notable absence of abrasions; the Indian's cheek and the exposed open fields on each side show no overt marks. The strike is equally top-notch, full on the eagle's uppermost feathers, which are sometimes problematic, even though some of the headdress details are on the soft side. An excellent example of the issue.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 28GP, PCGS# 8864)
