||1910 $2 1/2 MS65 NGC. CAC. The 1910 issue is much scarcer in high Mint State grades than either the 1908 or 1909 dates. This Gem example shows a bold strike on the obverse and central reverse, although some characteristic die buckling is seen in the reverse legend. The luster is soft and satiny in keeping with the Mint's experimentation with slightly more granular surfaces. While many examples of the date show frequent abrasions and field marks, the fields and devices on the present coin are remarkably clean. Glimpses of bright yellow-gold accents enhance the overall khaki-gold patina. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
