    Superb Gem 1905 Ten Dollar
    Among Finest Certified

    1905 $10 MS67 PCGS. CAC. Even though the 1905 eagle, with its mintage of 200,992 coins is considered a common date, it is much more difficult to locate than some of the true common dates, such as the 1901 or 1901-S. Jeff Garrett and Ron Guth comment in their Encyclopedia of U.S. Gold Coins 1795-1833: "The 1905 eagle is one of the more common 'tough' dates of the 20th century, meaning that it is fairly easy to obtain, but it is not nearly as plentiful as dates such as 1901, 1901-S, and 1907. As is typical for coins of this period, low-end Uncirculated coins rule the day, whereas gem examples are rare." In his 1980 Analysis of Auction Records, David Akers summed up his similar observation by writing: "Gem uncirculated examples of this date are scarce, but specimens below that quality level are generally available."
    Only four submissions of this date have been certified MS67 or MS67+ by PCGS. In our past auctions dating back to the beginning of our auction archives in 1993, we have offered only other PCGS MS67 example of the 1905 eagle, which appeared in our FUN Signature two years ago.
    A radiant beauty, this example has highly lustrous and frosty yellow surfaces with hints of orange and honey-gold toning. The strike is bold with only stars 7 and 13 slightly weaker than normal. The central portrait and eagle are both exceptionally full. The surfaces are immaculate with only tiny blemishes visible under a strong glass.
