Quarter ounce gold bullion type American Eagle $10. I included it here because I wanted to show a "burnished" type finish, it is also the first year this variety was offered. These are much scarcer (15 k) than than the uncirculated (2006 mintage 60 k, and proof 36,127). It appears sterile and digital but the burnish is none-the-less pleasing. Obverse design by Augustus St. Gaudens and rhe Rx by Miley Busiek.
Hettie Anderson is the known model for the $20 gold piece of 1907> and the Walking Liberty half dollar, she was born in South Carolina in 1873. She relocated to New York City, where she became an artist's model, an uncommon employment at that time for a woman of African-American descent. Anderson posed for the Sherman Monument's figure of Victory in 1897; one of her sittings with Saint-Gaudens was captured by the artist Anders Zorn. Anderson was also the model for the figure of Liberty on Saint-Gaudens' twenty-dollar gold piece.
