    1926 Ten Dollar Indian, MS66
    Superior Quality Overall

    1926 $10 MS66 NGC. CAC. As a date, the 1926 eagle is the second most common of all the Indian Head ten dollar gold coins. Gems are not difficult to locate. However, the situation changes dramatically at the MS66 level. The present coin is a particularly pleasing example of this Premium Gem rarity. The fields are virtually free of abrasions, with only a short reeding mark above D in the denomination to serve as a pedigree marker. The obverse displays thick, frosted mint luster with intense red-gold color and generous portions of lilac interspersed over each each side. The strike is strong and crisp overall with all of the details of Saint-Gaudens beautiful design shown to best advantage. This exquisite Premium Gem eagle represents the highest goal a collector can aspire to for this date. Census: 51 in 66 (1 in 66+, 2 in 66 ), 0 finer. CAC: 6 in 66, 0 finer (9/17).(Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 28H9, PCGS# 8882)
