Notes:
"1910-D&S... are fairly scarce. We know the "S" is scarce because of its low mintage, but the scarcity of 1910-D is as yet unexplained.

1910-D also does not come with a good strike - many times the details are shallow. Add to this unattractive toning that quite a few high grade certified pieces have, and you will likely find it difficult to be satisfied with this date."1

The finest Uncirculated example graded by PCGS is a single MS-67.
