Description:
Impressive Gem 1900-S Ten Dollar
1900-S $10 MS65 NGC. This turn-of-the-century date has a contradictory presence in the Mint State tiers of preservation. For example, Garrett and Guth note: "A substantial number of circulated examples are known, but Mint State pieces are quite scarce and can be difficult to locate in grades above MS-62."
On the other hand, the very next sentence states that "Despite the rarity of Uncirculated examples, there are some special 1900-S eagles at the very highest levels." This Gem is one such treasure, alone at the MS65 level in the combined certified population with four finer grading events (10/10). Yellow-orange surfaces are boldly lustrous, and the central devices are sharply struck. Only the lowest stars show softness, and this is readily forgivable in the context of the overall eye appeal.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 267N, PCGS# 8746)
