Legendary 1933 Ten Dollar--The Only 1933 Gold Coin Legal To Own

1933 MS 64 NGC. A legendary rarity and one that is widely known even outside the relatively small group of specialists who pursue 20th century gold. One of the most frequently asked questions in U.S. numismatics is why 1933 tens are legal to own when the twenties are not. The answer involves when each was released, the tens having been released to the public before March 1933 and the twenties afterward.
The 1933 is the rarest issue in the series in all grades, but is third rarest in mint state, trailing the 1913-S and 1911-D. Unlike most of the 30-35 pieces known, this piece is minimally abraded with no more abrasions than, say, a similarly graded 1932. Mint luster is quite different, however, being more satiny and less flashy with a couple of small alloy spots on the reverse around the O in OF. Of the utmost importance to advanced collectors of this well produced and challenging series. From the New York Collection. Population: 3 in 64, only 1 is finer (8/98). (NGC ID# 28HC, PCGS# 8885)
