1930-S $10 MS65 PCGS. The mintage of the 1930-S ten was sufficient that one would think it would be more available than it ...
The existence and possible existence of hoards is always an interesting topic of discussion in the ten and twenty dollar series. One of the most intriguing bits of speculation in Breen's Encyclopedia involves a story about the 1930-S ten: "For some decades, one 1930-S turned up in the San Francisco area every three years, probably from a single roll." If Breen's speculation was correct, by now the original supply would be exhausted.
This is a memorable example that has rich, frosted mint luster with an even layer of reddish-golden patina. With magnification, one can see slight traces of lilac over the highpoints. Most easily identifiable as the Kutasi coin by the presence of a shallow, diagonal mark in the field out from the left, forward curve of the eagle's wing.
Used as the plate coin in the new The Coinage of Augustus Saint-Gaudens as Illustrated by the Morse Collection.
