Expert Comments

David Akers (1975/88): The 1910 is not especially difficult to find in MS-63 or less but top grade examples are certainly rare. Overall, the 1910 is roughly comparable to the 1909 and 1912 but it is marginally more difficult to find in MS-64 or MS-65 than either of those two issues. A few really superb specimens are known, the finest I have seen being the Kruthoffer coin.

The 1910 is nearly always very well struck with very good lustre. Appearance is very similar to the 1909 although the lustre is generally a little less vibrant. Most specimens are of the "soft" frosty type but there are a number of satiny examples that are not unlike the Roman finish Proofs of this issue. Color is usually light to medium yellow gold but some examples have a very appealing orange to greenish gold color.
