Description:

MS64+ 1912-S Eagle
Better-Struck Than Normally Seen
1912-S $10 MS64+ PCGS. CAC. Michael Fuljenz, in his recently released work on Indian gold coins, ranks the 1912-S ten dollar ninth of out 32 issues in rarity at the Gem level. He comments that the "1912-S is a true condition rarity" in the series, adding that "nearly every known piece is very poorly struck with a considerable lack of detail, even less than the 1911-S and 1913-S." We are nonetheless pleased to offer the present treasure trove of several examples, each better-struck than is typical for the issue. This MS64+ PCGS specimen offers bright surfaces that are orange-gold overall, tinged with yellow at the rims. A strong mattelike finish complements the softly beaming mint frost overlying each side. The only mentionable marks are a couple of shallow horizontal ticks across the the high points of Liberty's cheek. There is some definition at the normally weak hair curls under LI. The reverse is also better-defined than normal, with good lower and peripheral details despite minor softness on the eagle's right (facing) forewing. Population: 10 in 64+, 9 finer (9/11).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 28GX, PCGS# 8872)
