Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: The luster and strike for the 1910 is very similar to that of the 1909 issue. Some, however, are seen with weakness of strike near the rims on both the obverse and reverse. The coins look very “mushy” and can be confused with poorly made counterfeits. Lower grade examples are very easy to purchase, but in Gem condition the date becomes quite rare. Less than 175 coins have been certified at that level. Superb examples are almost non-existent with only a dozen certified as MS 66 (11/12). None have appeared at auction since 2008 when one sold for $13,800.
