    Exceptionally Well-Preserved
    1912-S Ten Dollar, MS64+

    1912-S $10 MS64+ PCGS. CAC. The 1912-S eagles saw a production of 300,000 coins, but at the MS64 grade level, PCGS has seen only 45 submissions, plus 10 in MS64+ (five of which we offer in the present sale), seven in MS65, and one each in MS65+ and MS66.
    David Akers writes in his Handbook:

    "The 1912-S is one of the most challenging Indian Eagles to locate in high grades, Even in MS-63 and MS-64 it is a very scarce coin. Factoring overall appearance and eye appeal into the equation, this 1912-S emerges as one of the rarest issues in this series."


    The portrait on the present MS64+ specimen is exceptionally clean. The strike is typically weak on the obverse at the hair curls under LI, and the definition is softer on the lower headdress feathers than the upper. The surfaces display pronounced mattelike effect with even, reddish-tinged color and softly glowing mint frost. The only noticeable mark is a scuff in the reverse field below E PLURIBUS UNUM, but otherwise both sides are remarkably pristine. Population: 10 in 64+, 9 finer (9/11).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 269G, PCGS# 8872)

    Weight: 16.72 grams

    The Coinage of Augustus Saint-Gaudens as Illustrated by the Morse and Duckor Collections
    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.
