|Although most collectors feel the $20 St. Gaudens Gold Double Eagle is the most beautiful of all U.S. coins, I believe the $10 Indian Gold Eagle by St. Gaudens is another beautiful design. The obverse Indian design and the wonderful eagle on the reverse are great, but the edge design of the raised stars instead of reeding is special. This 1932 $10 Indian Gold Eagle has been graded MS64 by NGC and is encapsulated in an older-style NGC "fatty" holder which is slightly thicker than the current NGC holders. This is a flashy gold coin with bright lustrous surfaces. The color is a strong light gold with some slightly deeper golden orange toning present on each side. There are some light marks and hits on each side of the coin, just enough to prevent a gem grade, but none too distracting. A beautiful overall example of the type.
Because of the difficulty in capturing the overall look of the coin in a single image, I have also included a short high-definition video of the coin towards the bottom of this listing in an attempt to give you a better idea of what this coin will look like in hand. Please note that you may need to adjust the video quality to 1080p and may need to increase the size of the video to full screen in order to see the coin in maximum detail.
