Ron Guth:

The 1910 Half Dollar boasts a relatively small mintage, but there are sufficient Mint State examples to satisfy most demand. This date is not "low-end" at all -- the most frequently-seen Mint State grade is MS64, and there are nice clusters of MS63's and MS65's on either side. MS66 is when this date becomes rare, and there are none finer (making it one fo the few dates in the series without an MS67 as a representative). The PCGS Coinfacts Condition Census is comprised almost entirely of MS66's, many of which show nice color and eye appeal. The finest 1910 Half Dollar is the PCGS MS66+ from the Duckor and Gardner collections.

David Akers: This is a popular date due to its low mintage of less than 500,000 pieces which makes it one of the lowest mintages in the entire series. Mint state examples, when available, are generally at the lower end of the quality scale, and Gems...are rare.
