This piece is definitely one of the dark-olive proofs. The surfaces are virtually flawless on the obverse.

The current online NGC Census Report enumerates two satin finish proofs, both graded PR64, alongside 64 survivors with the matte finish, ranging from PR62 to PR68. PCGS's online Population Report also lists two satin finish proofs, both graded PR64, along with 34 matte proofs. The present specimen, graded PR66 by PCGS, is one of seven so graded, with none finer (11/06). Both of those population totals for matte proofs include the inevitable resubmissions. As the most available proof issue in the finest obtainable grade, this wonderful coin would make an ideal acquisition for a high grade type set.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 268E, PCGS# 8890)
