    1907 Wire Rim Ten Dollar, MS63
    Only 450 Pieces Survive

    1907 $10 Wire Rim MS63 PCGS. The 1907 Wire Rim ten dollar issue is highly prized by series specialists and type enthusiasts alike, and it is widely considered the most faithful representation of Augustus Saint-Gaudens vision for the coin. The Mint issued two modified versions later in the year. The first modified issue, of which 31,500 coins were struck and all but 50 pieces were melted, included a rounded or rolled rim added by Charles Barber. The final and most widely available 1907 Indian Head eagle issue featured the removal of the periods within the motto. Approximately 450 Wire Rim representatives survive from a net mintage of 472 pieces. This is an exceptionally attractive example of this 1907 rarity. The surfaces show only one pinscratch of note, located on the right side of the reverse. A tiny, triangular-shaped planchet void is seen on the eagle's forward leg. Subtle rose and lilac patina is seen over each side with thick underlying mint frost.(Registry values: N4719)
