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):
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.
