1910 $10 PR66 NGC....
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)
