    Among Finest Certified 1909 Eagles

    1909 $10 MS67 PCGS. Ex: Duckor. In his A Handbook of 20th-Century United States Gold Coins, David Akers writes: "The 1909 is one of the rarest Philadelphia Mint issues, surpassed only by the 1933, 1907 Rolled edge and the 1908 No Motto. Up to the grade of MS-62, specimens are not too difficult to locate and even in MS-63 they are encountered fairly often. True Gems (MS-65 quality) are another matter altogether and they are very rare. Better than MS-65, this issue is almost nonexistent...." Akers' assertion about the rarity of the '09 eagle in the better grades of Uncirculated are borne out by the population statistics. Only about three dozen Gems have been seen by PCGS and NGC to date, along with ten or so MS66 specimens and a mere five Superb Gems.
    The MS67 piece presented here displays gorgeous greenish-yellow and orange-gold color over a highly lustrous, slightly grainy finish. A well executed strike is present on the design elements, with the Indian's hair and headdress and eagle's feathers exhibiting sharp delineation. The surfaces are impeccably preserved; a minute mark on the jawbone and another on the eagle's lower left (right facing) wing are mentioned for pedigree purposes. Population: 2 in 67, 0 finer (3/06).
