1912-S $10 MS65 PCGS. As we pointed out in the above lot on the MS66 '12-S ten dollar, coins that grade full Gem and better...
As we also indicated previously, the 1912-S is one of the most unattractive issues of the series, and one of the most poorly struck. Fortunately, the coin offered in this lot, like its MS66 predecessor, generates considerable overall eye appeal. While not as bright as the aforementioned Premium Gem, it still exudes nice luster, and possesses very attractive orange-gold color imbued with traces of lime-green and tan. The motifs are also well executed, including relatively clear definition in the hair around the Indian's hair and on the eagle's shoulder feathers, areas that are typically weak. A few small marks on the Indian's cheek and lower neck and in the lower left (facing) obverse field are mentioned for accuracy. Population: 7 in 65, 1 finer (9/05).
