Sharp 1908-D No Motto Ten Dollar, MS641908-D $10 No Motto MS64 NGC. The 1908-D No Motto ten dollar is difficult to locate in the better grades of Mint State, i.e., MS64 or finer. NGC and PCGS together have seen fewer than 50 near-Gem examples, and about 20 pieces finer. Moreover, David Akers, in his A Handbook of 20th-Century United States Gold Coins, 1907-1933, says that the '08-D No Motto is one of the least attractive issues in the Indian Head ten dollar series, "... due largely to the fact that it is generally flatly struck on the obverse and is decidedly lacklustre."
The current near-Gem displays potent luster and sharply struck motifs, including good definition in most of the Indian's hair and headdress feathers, and the eagle's plumage. Brassy-gold surfaces reveal just a couple of minute marks that preclude full Gem status. Census: 17 in 64, 14 finer (6/07).
