1913-S Indian Eagle NGC MS64+ CAC

San Fran $10 Indian Rarity

The 1913-S Indian eagle claims a low production total of 66,000 pieces and few high-quality specimens were saved by contemporary collectors. Most of the coins were released into circulation at the time of issue, where they circulated heavily in both domestic and foreign trade. As a result, most examples seen today are in circulated grades, in the VF-AU grade range. In his Indian Gold Coins of the 20th Century, Mike Fuljenz notes: “The 1913-S Eagle is regarded as one of the great condition rarities in all of the 20th century U.S. gold series. It is moderately scarce even in circulated grades and the small numbers of Uncirculated pieces that exist consist mainly of MS60 to MS62 pieces. Only three examples have been graded higher by NGC. In MS63, this date is rare and it is very rare in MS64.”

1852-O Liberty Eagle PCGS AU58

Lustrous, Semi-PL

With their energies directed mostly toward the production of double eagles, New Orleans Mint officials struck a paltry 18,000 ten-dollar gold coins in 1852. In 2006, Doug Winter, who called this issue “one of the rarest No Motto eagles,” estimated 80 to 90 coins survived in all, including two to four Uncirculated coins. Today, NGC shows two in Mint State (one in MS60 and one in MS61) on their population report, while PCGS shows one in MS60, with none higher. The PCGS population is only 4 with 3 higher (two AU58+’s and the aforementioned MS60).

1914-S Indian Eagle PCGS MS65

Gem; Just Two Graded Higher

Here is a most impressive survivor from among this moderately low-mintage San Francisco issue – the 14th lowest mintage of the series. While its ranking makes sense when discussing circulated coins, when strictly uncirculated examples are considered, the issue is among the scarcest all ten-dollar Indians. Additionally, it’s seldom available with both problem-free surfaces and in high grade.  This one features lovely color and a highly pleasing overall appearance.

Similar to other S-mint Indian tens, the 1914-S is a significant condition rarity. This issue saw a mintage of 208,000 pieces and is relatively easy to obtain in circulated grades. Most Mint State examples grade MS60 to MS63, and are obtainable with patience and searching. Near-Gems are scarce and MS65 and finer pieces are rare. The PCGS population is only 12 with 2 graded higher (one of which is an MS65+). That helps to explain why we have not auctioned a PCGS MS65 since way back in 2007! This one features lovely color and a highly pleasing overall appearance.

1842 Large Date Liberty Eagle NGC MS61

Scarce, Flashy Unc.

Although the Guide Book mintage for the Large Date variety is multiples of its Small Date counterpart, the two issues are similarly priced, and approximately equal in rarity. This is the only MS61 to be graded by NGC and just two have been graded higher. The one we offer here is – and we’re about to play our broken record, once more – is lighter, as well as more lustrous and attractive than seen in our lackluster images.

1878 Liberty Eagle PCGS MS64+

Just 1 Graded Higher

When one just looks at the mintage of 73,700 pieces, the 1878 would appear to be moderately scarce, but nothing would tip off the collector to just how rare it actually is in higher grades. Our records show that we’ve auctioned only six MS64/64+ examples in the past ten years, attesting to the issue’s extreme rarity at this grade level. This one is particularly well struck. The PCGS population is just 3 with 1 higher.

1853 $10 Assay Office Ten Dollar, 900 Thous. PCGS AU53

Local merchants petitioned the U.S. Assay Office to issue lower denomination gold coins in early 1853 to deal with a chronic shortage of small change in the region. The Assay Office complied, issuing $10 and $20 coinage on an emergency basis from February 23 to March 1. But these coins were necessarily of lower fineness than the .900 alloy specified by the federal government because the firm had no parting acids on hand. When a supply of parting acids finally arrived, the Assay Office produced $10 coins with the proper fineness between March and April of 1853. They are classified as the K-16 variety in Don Kagin’s series reference and are quite elusive and prized today. In hand, this one’s color is lighter than seen in our images. The PCGS population is just 2 with 14 higher.

First Year 1907 No Motto Indian Eagles PCGS AU58 & PCGS MS61

A Special Offering

Saint-Gaudens’ initial design for the Indian eagle did not include the motto IN GOD WE TRUST, but the inscription was added in 1908, creating a popular two-year design type. The 1907 issue is the go-to No Motto type-coin for many collectors. And that makes perfect sense, as it’s a first- year-of-issue of a two-year type. We have the following available for sale:

PCGS AU-58 (20 coins available) Offered at $1,195/each

PCGS MS-61 (18 coins available) Offered at $1,265/each

1876-CC Liberty Eagle PCGS AU50

Lustrous CC $10 Rarity

Annual gold eagle coinage at the Carson City Mint breached the five-figure barrier (and barely) only four times prior to the 1885 to 1889 hiatus during which the mint was shut down. Double eagles dominated large denomination gold production from the Comstock Lode-fed branch mint during this period. In 1876, only 4,696 tens were struck. This issue circulated extensively and is unknown in Mint State today. The PCGS population is just 11 with 12 higher. In hand, this example is lighter and brighter, as well as more lustrous and attractive than seen in our images.

1861 Clark Gruber $10 NGC AU55

Tough

Clark, Gruber & Co. was a diversified banking business as well as a private minter of gold coin. 1861 marked its final year of minting operations, amid a large influx of gold coins struck at the Federal mints and local lobbying for a branch mint in Denver. The firm struck a large number of ten and twenty dollar gold coins, as well as quarter eagles and half eagles. All denominations used the portrait of Liberty and spread-winged eagle resembling Federal designs. As always, the gold content met or exceeded Federal standards.

1871-CC Liberty Eagle NGC AU53

A Rare CC $10 Lib.

The Comstock Lode is famous for its vast yield of silver ore, yet gold was found in abundance as well. In 1871, a large amount of gold was taken from Comstock, although most of it went to the San Francisco Mint. Carson City received a mere 25% of the gold output. South America was the beneficiary of some 1871-CC eagles, although most of the 8,085-piece mintage circulated in local commerce. Few Mint State pieces were saved or otherwise preserved, with just three Uncirculated examples shown on the combined NGC and PCGS population reports.
