    1899-S Liberty Eagle, MS64+
    Ex: Eric P. Newman

    1899-S $10 MS64+ NGC. CAC. Ex: Eric P. Newman Collection. The 1899-S is easily located in grades of MS62 and lower, but its availability dramatically declines in each succeeding higher grade. The date becomes rare at the Choice level, and finer coins are exceedingly so. Not surprisingly, the finest coin in the Smithsonian Institution grades only MS62, per Garrett and Guth. This piece is the only MS64 example at NGC to receive a Plus designation (11/15), and the coin is fully deserving of the award. Shimmering golden mint luster engulfs each side in frosty radiance, and the design elements are razor-sharp. The eye appeal is certainly deserving of a Gem grade designation. Census: 11 in 64 (1 in 64+), 6 finer (11/15).
    Ex: Eric P. Newman Collection, Part V (Heritage, 11/2014), lot 3321..(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 267L, PCGS# 8744)

    Weight: 16.72 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
