Desirable 1908 No Motto Eagle, MS651908 $10 No Motto MS65 PCGS. Of the 288 No Motto Gem eagles certified by PCGS, fully 250 of them are dated 1907. While less elusive in MS65 as the 1908-D (of which PCGS has graded just two examples in that grade), this issue, with its picayune mintage of 33,500 pieces, still presents a significant challenge for those who would collect the series. Anyone who acquires this lot would lift a significant roadblock to a complete set of Saint-Gaudens eagles. The devices are well struck, and the softly lustrous apricot-gold surfaces have only a handful of small marks. A few minor ticks on Liberty's cheek and on the eagle's leg prevent an even higher grade. Population: 21 in 65, 10 finer (3/08).(Registry values: N4719)
Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 28GG, PCGS# 8853)
Weight: 16.72 grams
Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
