1930-S $10 Indian. PCGS graded MS-66 PQ. A fantastic gem example with stunning golden mint bloom color on both sides. One of five well-known keys to the beautiful Indian Eagle series, the 1930-S is the only $10 gold delivery of the 1927-1931 years. Survivors are much more elusive than even the limited original mintage of 96,000 might suppose. Authorities believe the issue experienced widespread melting by the Treasury Department in the 1930s. Most examples today exist in Mint condition, which is why the 1930-S is not rightly regarded as a condition rarity. With that in mind, the issue is an absolute rarity at the Mint State 66 level, there'll be no denying that, with precious few available for collectors per the population numbers which follow this description.

It is always an occasion of great anticipation for this auction house when it has the opportunity to offer a Gem BU 1930-S Indian Eagle. The truth of the matter is that this coin is a sleek-looking Gem, one whose smooth-cheeked Liberty pushes all others to the sidelines. Both sides emit capable-looking reddish-gold luster that yields to swirling tints as light strikes it at different angles. There are no isolated areas where this doesn't occur; in other words, the entire coin is amazing. Pleasingly sharp detail from a bold strike is seen throughout, as well. The flowing mint luster is truly exceptional in quality (even by the standards of this strict PCGS grade). There are scarcely any abrasions to be found, while the eye appeal alone positions it for an even higher Superb Gem rating. A coin that will have no difficulty attracting crowds of 21st century gold seekers in today's onrushing Gold Stampede of the decade! Pop 4; 1 in MS-67 (PCGS # 8883) .
Estimated Value $75,000 - 90,000.

Realized $80,500
