    MS66 1908-S Indian Head Ten
    Flashy Surfaces With Thick Mint Frost

    1908-S $10 MS66 NGC. The 1908-S Indian Head eagle is one of five issues for the year that can be collected between Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco and the No Motto and Motto types, since San Francisco struck only the latter, in the meager amount of 59,850 pieces. Since there were no branch-mint productions of the first-year 1907 Indian tens, it appears that some savvy collectors in and around San Francisco must have hung onto some of the new-design coins of the 1908 vintage, as there are some remarkably high-grade survivors for such a low mintage.
    The present Premium Gem boasts the thick, fabulous mint frost typically seen on 1908-S fives, tens, and twenties, over surfaces that are deep reddish-gold. One short horizontal mark on the cheek is the only noticeable flaw, and the surfaces are sharply struck throughout. Census: 5 in 66, 5 finer (7/12).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 28GL, PCGS# 8861)

    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.
