    1891 Near-Gem Ten Dollar
    An Important Condition Rarity

    1891 $10 MS64 PCGS. The 1891 ten dollar is a relatively scarce date, although Uncirculated pieces through MS62 are available with a little patience and searching. MS63 examples, however, are elusive, and higher-grade coins are extremely rare. The 2006 Garrett and Guth gold reference calls the 1891 in Choice Uncirculated grade "one of the bargains of the century." That comment holds true to this day. Reddish-gold patina resides on the lustrous surfaces of this richly frosted, straw-gold MS64 example. The strike is razor-sharp throughout. A few minute marks may preclude full Gem classification, although there are no individually notable abrasions. PCGS and NGC combined have graded a mere six near-Gems, and just one finer coin (none finer at PCGS). PCGS Population: 5 in 64, 0 finer (5/19).(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 266T, PCGS# 8719)

    Weight: 16.72 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
