    MS64+ 1912-S Ten Dollar
    Reddish Surfaces, Sharply Struck

    1912-S $10 MS64+ PCGS. CAC. Another in this minihoard of 1912-S eagles certified MS64+ by PCGS. The issue was minted to the extent of 300,000 coins, but it is one of which neither David Akers nor Michael Fuljenz, both published authority-experts on 20th century gold, have much complimentary to say. The usual complaints are strike, luster, and abrasions.
    This MS64+ piece is fairly unabraded nonetheless, with one shallow, nearly vertical mark in center of cheek. The portrait overall, however, is cleaner than normally seen. The fields are lightly marked on each side, including a couple of sharp ticks on the right (facing) wing. Two typical areas for the noted strike weakness are the high-point hair curls just under LI in LIBERTY and the forepart of the eagle's right (facing) wing, and while the former shows minor weakness, the latter is better-detailed than normal, and the lower headdress feathers are also well-struck. The lower reverse shows a bold strike, including the mintmark, claws, and fasces. The slightly granular surfaces host rich, reddish-tinged color. Population: 10 in 64+, 9 finer (9/11).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 28GX, PCGS# 8872)
