    Gem 1908 No Motto Ten
    Underrated, Low-Mintage Issue

    1908 $10 No Motto MS65 NGC. CAC. The 1908 No Motto eagle wins the low-mintage sweepstakes among eagle issues of the year, produced to the extent of 33,500 pieces. Even though it is not as well-known, the mintage was only 50% above that of the 1908-S Saint-Gaudens, a celebrated low-production issue of 22,000 pieces among the double eagles. Part of the collector confusion may lie with the 1908-D No Motto and the 1908 With Motto, both struck in far more plentiful supply. At any rate, Gem 1908 No Motto tens are available but seldom seen finer; NGC and PCGS combined have graded four dozen at this level and two-and-a-half dozen finer (3/12). Deep orange-gold color immediately invites the viewer in, and, no irreverence intended, the fields are uncluttered and display a rather cameo appearance due to the absence of the motto, an effect heightened by the paucity of visible contact on both sides. A super example of this underrated issue. Census: 26 in 65, 19 finer (3/12).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 28GG, PCGS# 8853)

    The Coinage of Augustus Saint-Gaudens as Illustrated by the Morse and Duckor Collections
    Revised Edition by James L. Halperin, Mark R. Borckardt, Mark Van Winkle, Jon Amato, and Gregory J. Rohan, with special contributor David W. Akers

    The Coinage of Augustus Saint-Gaudens is an issue-by-issue examination of these two artistically inspired series of gold coins. Each date and mintmark is reviewed with up-to-date information, much of which has never been previously published. The book is based on two extraordinary collections: The Phillip H. Morse collection and the Dr. and Mrs. Steven L. Duckor collection.
