1910 $20 MS66+ Certification #29586232, PCGS #9154

Expert Comments

David Akers (1975/88)

The 1910 is by far the most common of the Philadelphia Mint issues from 1908 With Motto to 1915. In MS-63 it can be obtained with only a little difficulty, and below that level it is common and readily available. Although not nearly as difficult to locate as the other early Philadelphia Mint issues in gem condition, the 1910 is still definitely rare in MS-65, and it takes both a little luck and a little patience to be able to find one. In superb (MS-67) condition, this issue is a major rarity. I can recall seeing only a couple such pieces.

The 1910 is invariably well struck and the surfaces are always the "soft" frosty type. Lustre on this issue is usually very good (much better than on the 1908 With Motto, 1911, 1913 or 1914) and the color is typically medium yellow or orange gold.
