1910 $10 MS66 PCGS....
Overall eagle production spiked in 1910 compared to the year before. With total production at 318,500 circulation-finish pieces, this P-mint issue is hardly a low-mintage rarity, though in context of the year of issue, Philadelphia had the lowest output for the denomination in 1910. Denver's mammoth mintage of over 2.3 million pieces was the second-highest recorded for the series, and San Francisco's production of 811,000 examples set a record for the mint and design. The eagle denomination, like other large-format coins of the time, had a production schedule largely dictated by demand, and that demand was not as strong on the East Coast as it was in the rugged West or beyond the Rocky Mountains.
The present Premium Gem is a remarkable representative that combines one of the most desirable modern gold pedigrees with the outstanding visual appeal and quality that made the collection famous. Both the central and the peripheral devices are solidly impressed for the issue, and the powerful luster adds vibrancy to the yellow-gold obverse and the honey-tinged reverse. Remarkably well-preserved on the portrait, and even though a few shallow marks present to the left of the eagle's legs, these flaws have only trivial influence on the tremendous eye appeal. With so many positives present for this piece, even the most discerning collector would be hard-pressed to want more in a 1910 eagle.
