Legendary 1920-S Indian Eagle, Pleasing Select Uncirculated Quality

1920-S $10 MS 63 PCGS. This coin was previously offered as lot 723 in our Philadelphia 2000 Bullet Auction, where it was cataloged as: "The 1920-S is one of the premier rarities in the Indian eagle series from the standpoint of total number of pieces known. Most extant '20-S eagles are Mint State, but locating an example above the MS 62 level is a task that requires considerable patience. This is an uncommonly well preserved coin for the series whose surfaces display only a few, well scattered abrasions. The strike is typical of the issue with softness of detail over the date, the central obverse, and the eagle's trailing leg feathers. Both sides are fully frosted with orange-gold coloration and a few whispers of powder-blue iridescence near the borders. A coin that would form the centerpiece of even the finest gold collection." (NGC ID# 28H8, PCGS# 8881)
