    1908 Indian Head Eagle, MS64+
    Inaugural Motto Issue

    1908 $10 Motto MS64+ PCGS. The surfaces of this high-end MS64 are frosty and sharply struck. Vibrant canary-yellow surfaces are exceptionally well-preserved for the first-year Motto type, an essential coin for both series and type specialists. While the 1908 Motto issue is available in lesser grades, high-end Choice examples are challenging and finer coins multiply the investment by a significant factor. Population: 10 in 64+, 130 finer (1/17).(Registry values: N2998)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 28GJ, PCGS# 8859)

    Weight: 16.72 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
