1912-S Ten Dollar, MS64+
David Akers writes in his Handbook:
"The 1912-S is one of the most challenging Indian Eagles to locate in high grades, Even in MS-63 and MS-64 it is a very scarce coin. Factoring overall appearance and eye appeal into the equation, this 1912-S emerges as one of the rarest issues in this series."
The portrait on the present MS64+ specimen is exceptionally clean. The strike is typically weak on the obverse at the hair curls under LI, and the definition is softer on the lower headdress feathers than the upper. The surfaces display pronounced mattelike effect with even, reddish-tinged color and softly glowing mint frost. The only noticeable mark is a scuff in the reverse field below E PLURIBUS UNUM, but otherwise both sides are remarkably pristine. Population: 10 in 64+, 9 finer (9/11).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 28GX, PCGS# 8872)
