10 Dollars, United States, 1907

<< >>
United States Mint, Philadelphia. Charles Barber retouched Augustus Saint-Gaudens's designs after the latter died in mid-1907. Barber had the good sense to leave well enough alone--in the case of the ten dollar piece. What we have here is a relatively common coin (nearly a quarter-million were struck at the end of 1907), in a distinctly uncommon state of preservation. This coin has essentially remained untouched for nearly a century.
Against President Theodore Roosevelt's objections, the motto IN GOD WE TRUST was added to the reverse in mid-1908. Thus amended, eagles with these designs were produced through early 1933.
