||1907-D $10 MS63 NGC. CAC. Garrett and Guth, in their Encyclopedia of U.S. Gold Coins, write of this issue: "The 1907-D eagle represents a classic example of why mintage figures should be discounted when determining rarity. In this case, the mintage of more than one million pieces makes the 1907-D eagle appear common, when it is really a semi-scarce date." Most surviving Mint State examples are heavily abraded, and those grading finer than MS64 are prohibitively rare. This luminous yellow-gold representative boasts unusually strong visual appeal for the grade, with the grade-limiting surface flaws being uniformly light and dispersed. A sharp strike further heightens the overall appeal. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
