Description:
Premium Matte Proof 1910 Ten Dollar Gold
1910 $10 PR66 NGC. Like the other three matte proof gold issues of 1910, the mintage of the Eagle for this year is suspiciously large. It was recorded that 204 proofs were struck of this denomination, but in light of how few examples are known today, either the mintage was recorded incorrectly or most were melted as unsold. Unfortunately, there was not enough collector demand at the time to support such a lofty mintage, and today the 1910 Ten Dollar is one of the rarest of all 20th century U.S. gold issues. The literature for this series states that perhaps as few as 15-20 pieces survive today with Akers having only recorded 15 appearances at public auction over a 37-year period. We believe, however, that the actual number of survivors is somewhat higher and estimate that perhaps as many as 30-45 pieces are extant today.
Proofs of this year continue the two-year tradition of using the Roman Gold finish, a hybrid matte and semi-brilliant proofing process that produced beautiful coins, but were all too often confused with business strikes by careless collectors or their heirs. This piece is a little more satiny than the 1909, and minutely deeper and richer in color. The surfaces are nothing less than spectacular with a bright, sparkling finish that is unaffected by even the tiniest impairments. The coin is identifiable by a minute spot located to the left of the forehead, another near the upper edge at the midpoint of the eagle's plumage, and a tiny line in the obverse field near stars 1 and 2. Given three blows from the dies to completely bring up the design, all details are finely replicated and of the sharpest quality. A first-rate specimen of this beautiful, two-year proofing process. Population: 8 in 66, only 4 finer (1/05).(#8892) (Registry values: N10218) (NGC ID# 28HG, PCGS# 8892)
