1910 $10 MS68 NGC. Tied for the finest graded with one other example and thus certainly one of the very finest known of...
The present coin was struck well before World War I, and this one obviously sat out that conflict in a secure location. Perhaps it was wrapped in a tissue from the time of striking, and carefully preserved to this day. It would seem unlikely that a gold coin of this quality would ever have been in a mint bag, as even the slightest movement against hundreds of other coins would cause abrasions beyond those seen here. As time spun on and another World War unfolded, this pristine 1910 eagle sat securely and escaped unscathed from that conflict as well. It is a testament to several collectors that any eagle from this period managed to survive in such superlative condition, and such quality is not only rare, but exceptional. An extraordinary coin that merits an owner who appreciates its ample charm.(Registry values: N1) (NGC ID# 28GR, PCGS# 8865)
