Description:
Attractive 1912-S Gem Eagle
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 are quite rare. In MS65, PCGS and NGC have seen a total of 10 coins, with only three grading higher (9/05). Some of these specimens are undoubtedly resubmissions.
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).

The Coinage of Augustus Saint-Gaudens as Illustrated by the Morse and Duckor Collections
Revised Edition by James L. Halperin, Mark R. Borckardt, Mark Van Winkle, Jon Amato, and Gregory J. Rohan, with special contributor David W. Akers

The Coinage of Augustus Saint-Gaudens is an issue-by-issue examination of these two artistically inspired series of gold coins. Each date and mintmark is reviewed with up-to-date information, much of which has never been previously published. The book is based on two extraordinary collections: The Phillip H. Morse collection and the Dr. and Mrs. Steven L. Duckor collection.
