    1910-S Double Eagle, MS66
    Scarce This Fine, Rare Any Finer

    1910-S $20 MS66 PCGS Gold Shield. More than five years have passed since we last offered a 1910-S double eagle in the seldom-granted Premium Gem grade. PCGS and NGC have certified a combined 19 examples at MS66, plus only three finer coins. Roger Burdette estimates a total of 9,500 pieces survive from a mintage of more than 2.1 million 1910-S double eagles. About 70-75% of those were repatriated from foreign holdings. Such coins would be an unlikely source for an example of this quality, given the rigors of transit and storage.

    This brilliant, medium-gold example is sharply struck, with smoothly frosted surfaces and just a handful of tiny, nondistracting marks. The Large S mintmark has a broad diagonal, and the eagle sports a "Long Eye" from die polishing. Cartwheel mint luster illuminates all aspects of the famous Saint-Gaudens design. The quality of this coin makes one wonder if it was purchased directly from the San Francisco Mint and so-preserved throughout its tenure in collector hands. Population: 10 in 66 (3 in 66+), 2 finer (1/19).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 26FH, PCGS# 9156)

    Weight: 33.44 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
