    Conditionally Rare Choice 1905-S Eagle

    1905-S $10 MS64 PCGS. The 1905-S is the most challenging 20th century eagle to find in high grades. Even low Mint State coins are very scarce, and this Choice representative is among the finest known. PCGS has certified just two MS64 examples (including the present coin), with only one numerically finer specimen reported (7/10). The yellow-gold surfaces of this remarkable piece boast outstanding luster. The strike is just a trifle soft on Liberty's hair and the tips of the eagle's wings. A few tiny handling marks prevent a Gem grade.(Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2683, PCGS# 8758)

    Weight: 16.72 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
