    Gorgeous 1908-S Eagle, MS64

    1908-S $10 MS64 NGC. While Garrett and Guth (2006) characterize this issue as available in grades from MS65 through MS67, examining the combined certified population reveals that Choice pieces are elusive, and Gem and better pieces are condition rarities. Combined with the small mintage of just 59,850 pieces, it is little wonder that the 1908-S is coveted in pleasing Mint State.
    This fascination near-Gem has eye appeal in spades, with flashy lemon-gold fields that show elements of orange and honey at the reverse margins. The obverse has excellent detail for the issue, and a touch of softness on the eagle's wing and leg is of little concern. A faint mark on Liberty's cheek and minor, scattered flaws account for the grade.
