Description

Very Scarce 1909 Indian Ten Dollar Proof

1909 $10 PR64 NGC. Like any proof Ten Dollar Indian, the 1909 is an extremely scarce and sought after item. A mere 74 specimens were struck in this second year of production and the number of survivors recognizable as proofs probably doesn't greatly exceed half of that figure. As with many valuable coins, the population figure for this issue is undoubtedly exaggerated to a degree by resubmissions.
The matte surface for this year and the next is the briefly used Roman Gold finish. This semi-brilliant proofing process gives the piece a bright, satiny appearance with a pale lemon-gold color (here beneath a pale reddish tint), obviously quite different from the traditional matte finish. Roman Gold Tens are very rarely seen today and infrequently appear at major auctions. Population: 26 in 64, 12 finer (9/01).
From the Ric Leichtung Collection. (NGC ID# 28HF, PCGS# 8891)
