Indian Head $10 Gold Basic Set, Proof (1908-1915)
Only eight coins comprise the $10 Indian set in proof, but they’re eight coins filled with challenge and rarity. From the lowest mintage coin (71 for 1913) to the highest mintage coin (204 for 1910) the facts remain the same: these coins are RARE.
The $10 Indians proofs are matte or Roman finish, depending on the date, as is true of the other gold coins of this era. Even the most “common” date (the 1908) has seen less than 20 pieces certified in Proof 65 or better.
The mintage figures for the 1910 have been brought into question, as its relatively high mintage of 204 isn’t indicative of its rarity. PCGS has graded only 20 pieces in nearly 15 years!
