Near-Gem Matte Proof 1908 Motto Ten
A Fully Struck, Pleasing Specimen

1908 $10 Motto PR64 NGC. Although the great majority of the 1908 With Motto tens were struck in the matte proof format, a couple of proofs are known with a satin finish. There are also a couple of matte proofs known of the 1907 No Periods tens, but for all intents and purposes the 1908 With Motto proofs are the first available for collectors desiring an example of the Saint-Gaudens ten dollar format.
The antique-gold surfaces on this near-Gem proof show essentially no signs of contact. Apparently it is several very shallow planchet depressions on each side, seen as slightly darker areas and completely undistracting, that preclude an even higher grade. A tiny planchet indent at the obverse rim, just right of the date, is as made. This fully struck specimen should generate considerable bidder enthusiasm. Census: 21 in 64, 39 finer (1/11).
From The Mesquite Collection.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 2AME, PCGS# 8890)

The Coinage of Augustus Saint-Gaudens is an issue-by-issue examination of these two artistically inspired series of gold coins.

Morse collection and the Dr. and Mrs. Steven L. Duckor collection.
