Most 1916-S tens are noticeably abraded, leading to grade restrictions of MS62 or so. Survivors typically are seen sharply struck, although definition is often lacking on the eagle's upper wingtip. Some specimens exhibit somewhat muted luster - especially when compared to many other dates in the Indian ten dollar series. These are usually coins that can be traced to the discovery hoards of the 1970s. Other (non-hoard) coins have brighter luster and a typical greenish-gold or orange-gold appearance. This coin has the attributes of a non-hoard coin, with bright red-orange color and extremely bright, satiny luster. Well defined throughout, a few minor abrasions have collected on each side. These, however, are entirely consistent with the assigned Gem grade. Unlike many 1916-S eagles, there is none of the characteristic weakness on the 1 and right side of the 9 in the date. As an identifier, a tiny raised die dot shows below star 4. Population: 8 in 65, 7 finer (11/07). (Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 28H7, PCGS# 8880)
