David Akers (1975/88): The 1910 is one of the more common issues of the series. Locating an example in MS-63 condition or less will present no difficulty at all. In MS-64 and even MS-65, there are enough examples in existence that one can be found with just a little effort. Some extraordinary MS-65+ to MS-67 or better examples are also known of this issue, perhaps as many as eight to 10 in all, making the 1910 one of the few Indian Head eagles of which it is possible to find a really superb quality example.

Most 1910 eagles are very sharply struck, as sharp as any other issues in the series. The vast majority of specimens are fully frosty with a very fine graularity to the surface; a smaller number are satiny. Lustre varies from slightly above average for the frosty specimens to excellent for the satiny ones. Most of the frosty examples are orange and greenish gold in color, while the satiny ones are typically light to medium yellow gold.
