Golden-Orange 1916-S Eagle, MS64+
Superlative Example of the Type

1916-S $10 MS64+ PCGS. CAC. Rich waves of golden-orange luster flow gently over both sides of this incredibly appealing S-mint eagle. The 1916-S eagle is seen more frequently than a few of the other S-mint eagles from the Saint-Gaudens series, such as the 1913-S and 1915-S, but at the MS64+ level of this example, this is a conditionally quite elusive coin. While PCGS has seen 35 submissions at the MS64 grade, this is the only MS64+, and there are only 21 finer (8/12). Few mentionable contact marks appear on either side, chief among them a couple of minor ticks on the eagle's rear wing feathers. A super coin to represent this popular type.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 28H7, PCGS# 8880)
