    1910-S Five Dollar, MS64
    Conditionally Scarce Semikey
    Few Finer Pieces Are Known

    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.

    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)
