A Key to the Series
Both Walter Breen and David Akers before him mentioned the existence of a small hoard of 1930-S eagles. Breen wrote in his 1988 Complete Encyclopedia: "For some decades one 1930-S turned up in the San Francisco area every three years, probably from a single roll." Such a roll would, of course, have long since been completely absorbed into the numismatic marketplace. Akers updates this mention in his more recent Handbook.
The typical 1930-S is much better struck than an average 1920-S, but it may still show weakness on the Indian's hair under the headdress and on the eagle's hind leg. The present piece offers gleaming luster throughout, with yellow-gold and orange-gold areas predominating amid glints of deeper color in the headdress tips. Minor strike softness appears on the Y of LIBERTY, as often seen, and on the high points of eagle's trailing leg. Tiny ticks on the base of Liberty's neck, a couple on the cheek, and on the reverse high points, none significant, preclude an even finer grade. Census: 39 in 64, 19 finer (9/09).
