    1908-D Indian Eagle, MS64+
    Underrated With Motto Issue

    1908-D $10 Motto MS64+ PCGS. CAC. The 1908-D Motto ten was struck in large quantity (836,500 pieces), yet Gem examples are elusive. Bagmarks are the culprit among survivors, since the issue is otherwise sharp and attractive. Many pieces may have been melted -- an underlying possibility that would explain the otherwise puzzling rarity factor. The issue ranks in the top ten among all Indian eagles in MS64 or finer rarity.

    This is a sharp, orange-gold example with a needle-sharp strike and outstanding eye appeal. A pair of tiny nicks in the chin are seen with a loupe, plus some minor chatter on the jawline -- the only obverse marks to mention, while the reverse a tiny tick near the right rim, midway between the eagle's tail and the final A in AMERICA. The smoothly frosted surfaces radiate mint luster from both sides. CAC endorsement confirms the high quality surfaces. Population: 1 in 64+, 23 finer. CAC: 2 in 64, 1 finer (11/19).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 28GK, PCGS# 8860)

    Weight: 16.72 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
