The Survival Estimate represents an average of one or more experts' opinions as to how many examples survive of a particular coin in three categories: 1) all grades, 2) 60 or better, and 3) 65 or better. These estimates are based on a variety of sources, including population reports, auction appearances, and personal knowledge. Survival estimates include coins that are raw, certified by PCGS, and certified by other grading services.
Numismatic Rarity converts the Survival Estimate for a particular coin into a number from 1 to 10 (with decimal increments) based on the PCGS Rarity Scale. The higher the number, the more rare the coin.
Relative Rarity By Type
Relative Rarity By Type ranks the rarity of this coin with all other coins of this Type. Lower numbers indicate rarer coins.
Relative Rarity By Series
Relative Rarity By Series ranks the rarity of this coin with all other coins of this Series. Lower numbers indicate rarer coins.
David Akers (1975/88):
In addition to being similar in appearance to the 1909, the 1910 is also similar in overall rarity to the 1909 except that it is somewhat more difficult to locate in MS-64 or better condition. True gems and even a few superb pieces do exist but they are considerably more rare than most people realize. Lumping this issue price-wise with the 1908 and the later dates is clearly a mistake based on the relative rarity of the issues.
The 1910 is rather similar in overall appearance to the 1909 except that the surfaces usually have a little more granularity and a bit less luster. The typical 1910 is well struck with good to very good luster and light to medium yellow gold color. Some examples show evidence of die buckling near the borders.
