Rare and Desirable 1920-S Indian Eagle, AU581920-S $10 AU58 NGC. The 1920-S Indian eagle is one of the classic key-date rarities in the series, the third rarest behind the 1907 Rolled Edge issue, and the 1933. At the time, the San Francisco Mint struck 126,500 eagles, but foreign banks were not in a position to request or receive further exports due to World War I. Virtually every coin that was produced entered circulation. Collectors saved a few of these pieces, but most were lost, melted, or redeemed, and few survive today. This example spent only a brief time in circulation before it was saved by a kind sole, and retains virtually full luster with only a trace of highpoint wear, and a few abrasions that are consistent with the grade. The reverse has a single small dark spot attached to the edge of the eagle's right wing.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 28H8, PCGS# 8881)
