Beautiful Gem Proof 1908 Motto Indian Head Eagle1908 $10 Motto PR65 NGC. This is an important proof issue, as the first one to showcase Augustus Saint-Gaudens' Indian Head gold eagle design. Fortunately for type collectors, it is also the most readily available proof issue of the series. There were 116 proofs struck in this year, and we believe that the number extant lies somewhere in the range of 40-55 coins.
It is always a treat for this cataloger to examine the surfaces of a matte proof survivor such as this one, which has obviously been carefully preserved for nearly a full century. Struck with unmistakable proof sharpness, this Gem exhibits the fine grain surface textures which, surprisingly, were not liked by most contemporary numismatists. The color is a light khaki-peach shade which is imbued with reddish overtones. The surfaces are virtually flawless--leading one to wonder whether the piece may even be conservatively graded at this level. Census: 11 in 65, 28 finer (6/07). (Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 2AME, PCGS# 8890)
