1930-S $10 Indian. PCGS graded MS-64 CAC Verified. Rich shades of golden toning. Popular scarce date. A well-liked key with the Indian Eagle series, the 1930-S is the only $10 gold delivery of the 1927-1931 years. These tend to be even scarcer than the limited original mintage of 96,000 coins might suggest. The issue is believed to have been melted extensively by the government. Most that have survived grade Mint State. It is always a pleasure for us when bidders have the opportunity to compete for a 1930-S Eagle in one of our sales. The fact that this coin is a vibrant looking MS64 only enhances the experience. Both sides glow their dominant reddish-gold hues. Precision minting is seen on all the key design features, as is flowing luster that bathes the high points with no diminishment in its brilliance. There are hardly any abrasions, either, and the eye skips along across the surface in a way that delights the aesthetic sense of beauty. We are sure that this will have no trouble serving as a focus in an advanced collection of 20th century gold Eagles. Pop 38; 19 finer; 15 in 65; 3 in 66; 1 in 67. (PCGS # 8883) .
Estimated Value $45,000 - 50,000.

Realized $55,200
