The 1930-S is one of the premier keys in the Indian eagle series. Only 96,000 pieces were struck, most of which remained in Mint vaults until the Gold Recall order of 1933, after which they were destroyed. Only a small number of pieces were ever available to collectors through traditional business, either via the Mint Cashier or distribution to federal reserve banks.
In their gold coin Encyclopedia, Garrett and Guth write, “In terms of overall rarity, this date ranks a little behind the 1920-S, with just a few hundred known in all, and those are scattered across the grading spectrum.” By population figure, this assessment of the 1930-S issue’s rarity is true, although it is not representative of the real-world availability of this issue. Any Gem example is a major rarity and finer pieces are prohibitively rare.
As compared to our images, in-hand, this Gem is lighter in hue, tends more towards-yllow gold (rather than orange-gold) and is noticeably more lustrous. The NGC population is 11 with 3 graded higher.
