1910-D. NGC graded MS-64. CAC Approved. Nice golden toning. The color is a rich shade of coppery gold. Pure-gold coins, as in our modern .9999 Fine bullion pieces, are yellow gold. However, the hardened circulation coins of yesteryear required an alloy of copper (usually 10%) to strengthen them for use in commerce, otherwise the would abrade rapidly. It is this copper alloy that lends its tint to the golden luster (PCGS # 9155) .
Estimated Value $1,400 - 1,450.

Realized $1,704
