Premium Gem 1930-S Eagle, Among the Finest Certified

1930-S $10 MS66 NGC. The 1930-S Eagle started out as a low mintage issue with just 96,000 pieces produced, but attained its significant rarity similar to the branch mint Twenties from this era when the vast majority was melted into gold bars to line the walls of Fort Knox. Most survivors of the Treasury recall are in Mint State, but few can challenge the lofty preservation of the present premium Gem. The booming luster rolls over nearly undisturbed surfaces, with the only evidence of light contact visible on the Indian's chin and on the UR in PLURIBUS. Sharply struck, only the eagle's back claw has not received a full impression from the dies, since the tip of the lowest headdress feather is absent because of a lightly lapped obverse die. Population: 2 in 66, 2 finer (7/04).
From The John Michael Stuart Collection, Part Two.(#8883) (Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 28HA, PCGS# 8883)
