    Historic 1920-S Ten Dollar, XF45
    An Unusual Circulated Example

    1920-S $10 XF45 PCGS. Among the most famous (as well as earliest) melt rarities in the 20th century gold series, the 1920-S was practically wiped out in the two decades after its creation, rendering the official production of 126,500 pieces meaningless. Ownership of any example is a mark of accomplishment, and this Choice XF example, an unusual circulated representative, can fulfill the dream for the winning bidder. Still-lustrous canary-gold and sun-yellow surfaces are lightly worn across the higher parts of the devices. Both sides show scattered light abrasions, and a wispy mark travels from Liberty's lips to the rim. Nonetheless, an appealing and important coin. Population: 2 in 45, 50 finer (11/10).
    From The Las Vegas Collection, Part Two.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 28H8, PCGS# 8881)

    Weight: 16.72 grams
