[ Coins ] Indian Eagles 1907 $10 Rolled Rim MS67 PCGS. This was the second version of the Saint-Gaudens ten dollar design produced in 1907. After plain-edge patterns of the knife rim/periods eagle were struck, Philadelphia Mint Engraver, Charles Barber, realized the lack of a normal rim prevented coins from stacking properly. Believing that these designs might be used for circulation purposes later in the year (not just to satisfy President Roosevelt), Barber used the same models as for the knife rim coins to make new hubs. However, on these new hubs the engraver cut a normal rim so that the pieces would stack. Experimental examples with irregular edge stars were made and the change was approved. But, before production dies could be made, another angry letter arrived from President Roosevelt demanding that coins be struck by September first from the first dies. Mint Director George Roberts had resigned in July, and Acting Director Robert Preston ordered 500 of the first variety struck. Barber's second version with normal rim and periods was then planned for use in striking circulation pieces. Just before large scale production began, a pair of new models arrived from Saint-Gaudens' estate. According to Barber, these models were satisfactory for circulation use and he recommended they be used in place of his rim-added version. Acting Director Preston apparently became confused about the different versions of the ten dollar coin, and ordered production use of Barber's version, over the objections of Barber and other Philadelphia Mint officials. Thirty-one thousand five hundred pieces were struck in late September and seemed destined for release to banks across the country. Philadelphia Mint Superintendent John Landis thought the results were inferior and that the mint should issue only pieces made from the new models. As an aside, numismatists today clearly disagree with Superinte
