Description:
NGC 1913 PR 66. Of the 165 proofs reportedly minted, the best estimate of the number of survivors extant today is 60-75 pieces. It would be a mistake to call coins of this date "common," because they certainly are not, however, relative to other dates in this illustrious series, one is more likely to locate a 1913 before, say, a 1909 or a 1915.
The 1913 continues the tradition of sandblast or matte proofing, and while the literature on matte proofs clearly states there is no textural difference between the two years, we note a dissimilarity between this piece and the PGCS Proof-66 1912 in both color and finish. The surface of this piece is much "tighter," that is, less granular, than the 1912 and lighter in color. We draw attention to this because there are a few coins in some years that are known to have been struck using a slightly different proofing process.
The surfaces overall are as close to perfection as any we have seen. There are virtually no contact marks and the brighter, lighter surfaces are exceptionally pleasing and there is just the slightest bit of reddish-orange patina on each side. Undoubtedly one of the finest examples known for both the date as well as the type. (NGC ID# 289M, PCGS# 7962)
