    1916-S Indian Eagle, MS66+
    The Sole Finest at NGC

    1916-S $10 MS66+ NGC. The 1916-S is a better date in Uncirculated condition, regardless of grade. Only 138,500 pieces were struck. This was the only ten dollar issue struck in 1916 at any mint, and no eagle coinage followed until 1920. The 1916-S is essential for a complete date set of Indian gold.

    In Gem condition, the 1916-S is a notable rarity, but finer pieces are even rare. PCGS has certified only eight examples at the Premium Gem level, with two finer. NGC has certified only one coin finer than MS65: the present example. This piece glistens with frosty, radiant yellow-gold mint luster. Sharp design elements complement the nearly flawless surfaces, and eye appeal is simply outstanding. The finest 1916-S eagle at NGC by a margin of nearly one and a half grade points. Census: 1 in 66 (1 in 66+), 0 finer (6/20).(Registry values: N1)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 28H7, PCGS# 8880)

    Weight: 16.72 grams
