||1907 $10 No Periods MS63 NGC. By the time Charles Barber finished modifying Saint-Gaudens' ten dollar gold piece designs, the relief had been lowered to an easily producible level, and several design elements were minutely modified, the most noticeable being the removal of the stops (or periods) on either side of the denomination. This was the third and final variant of the 1907 Indian eagle, and examples remain plentiful in Mint State grades for type representation. This example exhibits satiny honey-gold luster with faint greenish overtones in the recesses. The design elements are well-defined, save for the hair over Liberty's ear which was softened during Barber's modifications. Surface abrasions are surprisingly minimal for the grade. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
