Owner's Comments

Laibstain. Probably from the Emery-Nichols collection. We bought the coin in a first generation "rattler" holder and it matches the Emery-Nichols catalog by description, and the small black and white photo also seems to be a match. Even golden and tan toning over nice surfaces with underlying luster. A better date tied with four others behind one finer example. A date we have always liked from the San Francisco Mint.

Expert Comments

David Akers: This is a very scarce and underrated issue in all mint state grades, and a rare one in Gem. It is significantly more rare in Gem condition than the 1910-S, and it is actually very nearly in the same rarity class as the 1906-1908 San Francisco Mint issues.
