1912-S Eagle, Exceptional MS65
1912-S $10 MS65 NGC. The 1912-S is one of the most
challenging Indian Head eagles to locate in Uncirculated grades.
This results in part from the fact that many examples entered the
channels of commerce at the time of issue. Additionally, most Mint
State survivors are in the lower levels due to poor strikes,
substandard luster, and heavy abrasions. The 1912-S is thus a prime
condition rarity in MS65 and finer. Indeed, NGC and PCGS combined
have certified fewer than 20 Gems and a mere three pieces
A Significant Condition Rarity
The present MS65 offering rises above the foregoing profile. First, it displays an above-average strike, including relatively strong definition in the hair around the Indian's face, an area typically very weak. The eagle's plumage also shows impressive detail, though the shoulder feathers are not full. Secondly. both sides display pleasing luster issuing from frosty surfaces attractively toned in orange-gold and lime-green colors. Finally, neither side reveals mentionable marks. The foregoing attributes add up to remarkably nice eye appeal for the date. This is significant because the issue is considered to be one of the least attractive in the Indian eagle series. Census: 8 in 65, 2 finer (1/14).
