Laibstain. A high-end gorgeous lustrous coin with sharp strike and nice overall color. All the features go together to explain how this coin received its lofty grade of MS 67+. 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 particular coin has great character.
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.
