Gem Roman Finish Proof 1910 Indian Head Eagle
1910 $10 PR65 PCGS. Regarding this date, David Akers commented: "Proofs of 1910 are of the Roman or satin finish type and are much more rare than the high mintage would indicate. Since 1910 proofs are similar in rarity to those of 1909 as well as the matte proofs from 1911 to 1915, and more rare than the proofs of 1908, it is probable that either the 204 mintage figure is in error or (more likely) that the majority of the mintage were melted and never sold to collectors. Because of their similarity in appearance to regular business strikes, it is also possible that the satin proofs suffered an unusually high attrition rate over the years."
Over the years since our first auctions in 1975, the Heritage companies have handled just 14 of these proofs on previous occasions, and all 14 auction appearances took place from 1989 through 2006. We had not handled a single proof example of this date prior to 1989. This example is tied for the finest that PCGS has ever certified, an important consideration for the advanced specialist.
The surfaces have a satin finish, sometimes called a Roman finish, that could also be described as "brilliant matte" finish. The fields have a pebbly texture with brilliant honey-gold color. Both sides, but especially the reverse, have reflectivity that gives this piece a special appearance. The surfaces are pristine without even the slightest visible impairment. This is almost regrettable, for we are unable to find any blemishes that would serve to track down the past ownership of this lovely Gem.

Revised Edition by James L. Halperin, Mark R. Borckardt, Mark Van Winkle, Jon Amato, and Gregory J. Rohan, with special contributor David W. Akers

The Coinage of Augustus Saint-Gaudens is an issue-by-issue examination of these two artistically inspired series of gold coins. Each date and mintmark is reviewed with up-to-date information, much of which has never been previously published. The book is based on two extraordinary collections: The Phillip H. Morse collection and the Dr. and Mrs. Steven L. Duckor collection.
