Gorgeous MS66 1914 Ten Dollar
1914 $10 MS66 PCGS. CAC. While the San Francisco and the
occasional Denver issue are most prominent in collectors' minds,
the generally higher-mintage Philadelphia coins have a couple of
champions, even among With Motto pieces. While the 1909 is rated
slightly higher in terms of high-grade collecting difficulty, the
1914 sports the lowest mintage of any Philadelphia With Motto
Saint-Gaudens eagle issue. With much of Philadelphia's gold coinage
dedicated to overseas trade, particularly European transactions, it
is less than coincidental that Philadelphia's smallest With Motto
eagle output should come in the same year that World War I began in
The Jim O'Neal Specimen
Mattelike, richly colored yellow-gold surfaces show occasional peach accents and a touch of green-gold at the upper reverse, and the luster is above-average even by the standards of the issue. Surfaces are carefully preserved and highly suggestive of an even finer grade, though a handful of small, wispy faults combine to preclude such a designation. Nevertheless, this marvelous Premium Gem survivor is sure to delight its next owner. PCGS has graded just eight examples at this level and only two finer (11/11).
