Owner's Comments

Laibstain. A high-end gorgeous lustrous coin with sharp strike and nice overall color. One finer coin is known in MS 68 and it has been off the market for about 10 years or more. I was last aware of it being offered for sale by David Hall Rare Coins along with another MS 68 coin, a 1905-O. A tougher date in the late part of the series and they generally come well struck with strong luster. This is a date we really like and this coin has great character.

Expert Comments

David Akers: [The 191O-S] is far more rare than the 1909-S and the 1913-1915 S Mint issues that complete the series. It is not, however, in the same rarity class as any of the earlier S Mint issues from 1892-1908, or the 1911-S.
