1930-S Ten Dollar Gold, AU53
Extreme Series Rarity

1930-S $10 AU53 PCGS. The 1930-S likely ranks fourth in overall rarity for the Indian ten dollar series behind the 1920-S, the 1933, and the 1907 Rolled Rim with Periods. Of these, the 1920-S, 1930-S and the 1933 were all heavily melted during the Gold Recall of 1933. The 1907 Rolled Rim, Periods production was nearly entirely melted, too, but that occurred the same year of mintage in 1907, apparently at the insistence of Charles Barber, who felt design changes were needed and proceeded to melt the offending coins.

The 1930-S had its production of 96,000 pieces melted to the extent that only a few hundred coins survive in all conditions. This example is an attractive, apricot-gold color with brilliant, lustrous surfaces. It is boldly struck and, if circulated at all, the rub is minimal. Rather, a series of shallow scrapes appear in the left obverse field to result in the assigned grade. Despite the abrasions, this is an appealing example of an incredibly in-demand Eagle rarity. Population: 1 in 53, 94 finer (1/14).
From The Fidelis Collection.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 28HA, PCGS# 8883)
