MCMVII PR62 High Relief
A Rarely Offered Proof Striking
1907 $20 High Relief PR62 NGC. Proof High Reliefs appear to have been struck later during the production run rather than earlier, as one might imagine. We say this because most proofs show little of the wire rim that is evident on earlier strikings. This "fin" as it was called by Mint employees was viewed as a defect, and steps were taken to eliminate it. That never entirely happened, but the extruded metal between the dies and collar was reduced considerably. The resultant coins are the Flat Rim variant. However, most Flat Rim High Reliefs do still show slight remnants of the wire rim. Proof strikings also show little evidence of the wire rim, leading us to conclude they were struck later in the production run after the Wire Rim coins were minted.
This interesting coin has die striations encircling the inner rim on each side, apparently done in an effort to more clearly delineate the rim from the peripheral devices. Other diagnostics are seen, such as rounded berries, all Capitol pillars countable, and sharp inner borders. The surfaces are slightly hazy, with strong underlying yellow-orange satiny luster. Close examination with a loupe reveals a few tiny contact marks scattered over each side, which apparently account for the grade. Rarely seen as a certified proof, this coin presents an opportunity for the 20th century collector of proof type coins. (PCGS# 9132)
