1911 $10 MS67 PCGS....
There is an interesting story about a small hoard of 1911 tens that came on the market in the early 1990s. We think it is a good story to pass along, even if it does not have a direct bearing on this particular coin (that we know of): A Pontiac car dealership in Ulysses, Kansas closed its doors after many years of service to that community. A prospective purchaser was searching through a dusty storeroom of obsolete parts, and discovered an old carburetor box containing 30-40 Mint State 1911 eagles that apparently had been hidden by the original owner who had long since passed away. What the grade distribution of these coins was we cannot say for certain, but speculation would lead one to suspect that if they had lain undisturbed in the old carburetor box for decades, the average grade must have been quite high.
As with most 1911 tens, striking definition is not a problem on this coin, with strong definition in all areas. Also, the surfaces have a frosted finish with fine granularity over each side. A thin diagonal mark below the L in PLURIBUS may serve in the future as a useful pedigree marker. This is a rare opportunity for the advanced collector to purchase one of the finest 1911 tens available.
