Finest known! This amazing Gem is the finest known…how do we know? Well, as some of you may know, I (David Hall) put together a complete set of $10 Liberties a few years back. The project took me 6 years and when I was done it was registered as the finest set assembled, even finer than Eliasberg, Bass, and the Smithsonian. I worked hard on it and had some fabulous coins…many MS67 and MS68 even. And even though I looked really hard for six years and wasn’t shy about paying up for great coins, my 1907-D was “only” a MS64. It was the finest I could find. And in retrospect, it’s understandable as in 36 years, PCGS has only graded four examples MS65 and none have been graded higher. So I would have died to buy this coin for my set. Why is the 1907-D so conditionally rare? There were only two Denver $10 Liberties…1906 and 1907. People weren’t saving coins in Denver at the time. And collectors weren’t interested in mint marks. They just wanted one of each date. So we have a really rare coin in high grade and this one is the finest known in our eyes. Certainly the finest we have ever seen. The surfaces are super clean. The strike is super sharp with 100% full detail of the stars, feathers, and claws. The luster and color is a rich gold. If I still had my set, this coin would absolutely not be for sale. But I sold my set a few years back so you can buy this coin now I you’d like.
