    Gem 1894 Ten Dollar
    Sole Finest at PCGS

    1894 $10 MS65 PCGS. CAC. Any Liberty Head eagle in Gem condition is an uncommon coin, relatively speaking, compared to the large numbers produced for many issues in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Most of the large mintages either were outright circulated to a great extent, or exported and melted before the great search for overseas hoards began after the Gold Recall of 1933. A quick perusal of the PCGS online Population Report reveals that there are only somewhere north of 1,300 survivors in MS65 grade of all With Motto tens combined. And even though there are a sprinkling of Gem P-mint survivors dating from the 1890s, this is the sole Gem of this date graded at PCGS, with none finer (3/11). The fields are bright and semireflective, with rich, even reddish-gold color covering both sharply struck sides. A loupe shows a few tiny abrasions and luster grazes, none worthy of mention.(Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2675, PCGS# 8729)

    Weight: 16.72 grams
