Gem Matte Proof 1908 Ten Dollar

1908 $10 Motto PR65 NGC. Of the 116 proof Tens struck in this year, all but two have the distinctive dark finish this year is known for, somewhere between a khaki and olive color. While it is widely recognized that the 1908 is the most "common" date among matte proof ten Indians, the number of survivors is not as large as one might at first believe. Traditional sources state that somewhere between two and three dozen pieces exist today. However, we believe a larger number are extant, somewhere in the range of 40-55 coins. This is a pleasing coin that exhibits the coarse-grain finish and the deeper color common to this year with a couple of shiny spots over the highpoints on each side. Population: 13 in 65, 8 finer (9/01). (NGC ID# 2AME, PCGS# 8890)
