Item Description:
A truly fantastic coin with original skin and exceptional for the grade. Mintage of a limited 500 coins. PQ++.

We are really excited to offer this great rarity -- the 1907 Wire Edge Ten. Not only is this an exciting numismatic rarity but the coin is a fresh and wholesome as the day is long. The coin was discovered in the late 1980's under a carpet during a house renovation. It was perfectly preserved there and the coin was promptly submitted to PCGS and it remains in that same holder to this day. Technically, we grade the coin MS65! How, you ask. Well, it has a few microscopic hairlines, but they are minor. The only true marks of note are on the date. The coin has full, original skin and has never been dipped. We note a PCGS MS64 coin is being auctioned by Heritage this month for comparison.
