Description 1906-D $10 MS65 NGC. In its first year of production, the Denver Mint produced nearly 1 million gold eagles, but the vast majority of survivors are heavily abraded, as Garrett and Guth illustrate in their Encyclopedia of U.S. Gold Coins: "The certified population reaches a peak at the MS62 level, then begins declining in higher grades. Examples in MS64 are somewhat scarce, and Gem examples are positively rare." This frosty, boldly struck representative shouts "eye appeal" from every angle; luminous yellow-gold luster enlivens each beautiful side. Census: 22 in 65, 2 finer (8/14). Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $4700.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
