||1907 $10 No Periods MS66 NGC. Of all the No Motto Indian eagle issues, the 1907 No Periods variant is the only one that can be correctly termed available in Gem condition for type purposes. Still, even this issue becomes elusive in MS66, and finer coins are nearly as rare as are those of lower-mintage issues. This piece exhibits radiant yellow-gold luster over satiny surfaces, while close examination reveals only a few minute ticks on each side that preclude an even finer grade. The hair over Liberty's ear is not fully defined, though this is due to Barber's engraving alterations, rather than to strike. NGC has encapsulated just 30 numerically finer representatives (8/14).
