    1920-S Ten Dollar, AU Details
    Third-Rarest Issue in the Series

    1920-S $10 -- Cleaning -- PCGS Genuine. AU Details. The 1920-S Indian ten dollar does not get as much publicity as the 1933, 1930-S, and 1907 Rolled Edge issues, but it ranks every bit as important in terms of overall rarity. In fact, only the 1933 and the 1907 Rolled Edge issues are absolutely rarer. The reason for its low survival rate is largely due to the gold recall order enacted by President Roosevelt in 1933, when large quantities of the date that remained in bank and Treasury vaults were confiscated and melted. PCGS and NGC combined have certified only 111 pieces in all grades, likely including a number of resubmissions (11/14). This piece is lightly cleaned, but retains pleasing, satiny luster and displays medium yellow-gold color. Slight wear is evident over the central high points, though the design elements remain otherwise well-detailed. An important offering of this scarce issue.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 28H8, PCGS# 8881)

    Weight: 16.72 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
