Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: This is the third–rarest date overall in the entire series behind the coveted 1933 and 1907 Rolled Edge variety. It is actually the rarest date in Mint State. The vast majority of this issue were melted in the great gold melts of the 1930s. Any example of a 1920–S Ten Dollar is cause for excitement. Most examples seen are softly struck, especially around the central portions of the obverse. Most are also weakly struck at the top part of the date. Surprisingly, a few Gem examples survive, including an MS 66 in the Smithsonian collection.
