United States, Ten Dollars, Pattern, 1907

<< >>
Description
United States Mint, Philadelphia. Saint-Gaudens created three pattern ten dollar pieces, almost identical with each other. This variety (which may have been the first one created) featured very sharp "wire" rims. About five hundred were struck. That raises the question of whether the coin is to be considered a pattern or something minted for circulation, but in very limited quantities. [reference no. Judd 1774]
