    Single Finest Known 1913 Indian Ten Dollar, MS67 PCGS

    1913 $10 MS67 PCGS. Ex: Duckor Collection. The 1913 ten dollar is considered a common date in the series with an original mintage of 442,000 business strikes. This roughly equates in rarity to the 1910, 1912, and 1915. In all grades below Gem Uncirculated, the 1913 is relatively easy to locate and Gems are only moderately scarce. In recent years, a number of previously unknown, higher grade Mint State pieces have become available to the numismatic community, but hardly any can be as attractive as this piece.
    The 1913 is typically sharply defined, and the surfaces are highly lustrous. In fact, the luster seen on this coin competes with that seen on some of the best produced S-mint tens. The color varies somewhat from a medium yellow-gold to pronounced rose-gold on the highpoints. The surfaces have virtually none of the granularity seen on the 1910 to 1912 Philadelphia Mint coins, and are very satiny in appearance. A few minor abrasions are noted on each side under magnification, but only one tiny group under IN GOD WE TRUST in the reverse field is worthy of note as a future identifier.
    David Akers noted: "A small number of exceptional quality (better than MS65) examples of this issue are known to exist, including at least two virtually perfect ones." As of this writing, only about 100 Gems have been certified at both services and fewer than 20 Premium Gems are known. This specimen is the solitary, Superb MS67 example seen by either service (3/06).
