Lustrous 1920-S Eagle, AU55
Third-Rarest Indian Head Ten

1920-S $10 AU55 PCGS. CAC. From a mintage of 126,500 pieces, the 1920-S is the third-rarest date of the Indian Head design type, after the famous 1907 Rolled Edge variety and the fabulous 1933. Ten dollar gold coins were not minted at the other mints in 1920. Indeed, the economic chaos surrounding the end of World War I had made the coins nearly obsolete. No eagles had been minted since 1916, and the denomination would not be coined again until 1926. The survival of any 1920-S eagle was purely a matter of chance, and the issue is scarce in all grades today.
The present coin is an attractive example of this key date. Wear shows only on the high points of the design, with all important detail unaffected. Much original luster and color remain, and some scattered abrasions are consistent with the grade. Population: 12 in 55, 35 finer (3/09).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 28H8, PCGS# 8881)

Needless to say I was overwhelmed by the results of the auction and I truly believe it was Jill’s efforts in promoting and displaying the piece that brought in the extra value.
