Fabulous 1911-S Gem Ten Dollar

1911-S $10 MS65 PCGS. The 1911-S ten dollar piece, with a mintage of just 51,000 pieces, is a scarce issue, but not the major rarity it was thought to be before the discovery of a hoard of 60 pieces in the Philippines about 1976.
Still, probably no more than 400 1911-S eagles are believed known in all grades, with most in Extremely Fine to About Uncirculated condition. A little more than 40 Gem pieces have been graded by PCGS and NGC, with none finer than MS66!
This MS65 coin displays beautiful apricot-gold patina laced with traces of mint-green. Fabulous luster exudes from both sides, and all of the design elements are exquisitely brought up. This coin would have certainly graded even higher were it not for a few unobtrusive marks. Population: 20 in 65, 8 finer (11/07).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 28GV, PCGS# 8870)

The way you grouped lots, photographed, and presented the material was too notch. I was impressed that you took the time to attribute coins to the Krause reference as their "plate coin" and that many of your descriptions included pertinent facts and infor
