1910-S Five Dollar, MS64
1910-S $5 MS64 PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The 1910-S is
significantly scarcer in Mint State than its mintage of more than
770,000 coins would suggest. Uncirculated pieces are seldom seen
finer than MS62, and this issue is decidedly rare in MS64, with
only a handful of Gems known. We have not handled a PCGS-graded
coin in MS64 or better condition in more than three years. In their
gold Encyclopedia, Garrett and Guth call this issue one of
most difficult Indian fives to obtain in Gem condition. Series
specialists are well-acquainted with its scarcity, and any coin
grading finer than MS63 is highly prized.
Conditionally Scarce Semikey
Few Finer Pieces Are Known
This example is outstanding, even within its Choice grade. Original honey-gold and silver hues adorn the satiny fields, while the sunken devices are sharply detailed. A few light marks do not detract. Population: 23 in 64 (3 in 64+), 7 finer (4/20).
Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 28DM, PCGS# 8519)
Weight: 8.36 grams
Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
