    1907 Wire Rim Ten Dollar, MS63
    Net Mintage of Only 472 Coins

    1907 $10 Wire Rim MS63 PCGS. The Rolled Rim and Wire Rim Indian eagles are the first pieces of the new Augustus Saint-Gaudens design that were produced before full scale coinage of the modified design began later in the same year. Like the High Relief double eagles, these coins most closely represent the original design concept that Saint-Gaudens intended. They are, in fact, the ten dollar version of the High Relief twenties, and every bit as important.

    While much has been speculated about these important issues over many decades, recent research of Roger Burdette has uncovered substantial new and factual information. His record of the mintage of these pieces alone is most important, showing a net mintage of 472 coins. Since these pieces did not actually circulate at the time, a large percentage of the original mintage still survives, yet these coins remain important 20th century rarities.

    This specimen exhibits a high degree of orange-gold mint brilliance with satiny mint luster on both sides. Although somewhat weak in the centers as usual, most of the remaining design elements are boldly defined. There are a few scuffs and nicks on each side, mostly on the reverse, limiting the grade to the Select Mint State level. Both sides have a matte or grainy appearance as always on these coins, with extensive die polishing lines visible in the fields. Although hard to see due to the PCGS holder, both sides have a nearly complete high wire rim.
