Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: Despite a relatively high mintage approaching 1 million coins, the 1910-S is very rare in Choice condition. The date can be considered one of the true condition rarities of the series. Most examples were melted and just a few are known in Gem condition. An MS 66 example sold at auction in 2009 for $120,750. The retail value of an MS 60 example is under $2,000. With the melt value of a $10 Indian currently around the $900 level, these can be considered an incredible bargain! The same can be said for many other issues of the series.
