    Sharp 1909-S Ten Dollar, MS66

    1909-S $10 MS66 PCGS. Ex: Duckor Collection. In the late 1970s, the discovery of a hoard of about 60 1909-S ten dollar pieces was sold intact by Ron Gillio to Jim Halperin of New England Rare Coin Galleries. Previously, this issue was virtually impossible to obtain in Uncirculated condition. Since then, a few other small hoards have been found, substantially raising the Mint State population. Despite these discoveries, the '09-S is still very scarce in Mint State, with most pieces residing in the MS62 to MS64 range. It remains one of the most difficult issues in the entire series to locate as a Gem, and in finer grades.
    Most Uncirculated 1909-S examples, including those from the above-mentioned late-1970s hoard, are generally well struck, and exhibit average to slightly above-average luster, as does this piece. The color is an attractive mixture of orange-gold and rose-gold shades, lending a fully original appearance overall. The surfaces are frosty, with little granularity and only a couple of minor abrasions on Liberty's chin and lower neck. These are mentioned only for future identification purposes. Population: 5 in 66, 2 finer (11/07).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 28GP, PCGS# 8864)
