1911 $10 PR66 NGC. Only 95 proof Tens were reportedly struck in 1911 and surviving examples are among the rarest of all 20t...
Proofs of this year are of the earlier matte variety, as are all the following years as well, and they show a distinctive "olive-mustard" coloration. The preservation of the surfaces of this coin is extraordinary. We can find no contact marks or planchet flakes, and there is almost no variation in color on this magnificent specimen. In fact, the only flaw we have been able to locate is a tiny planchet anomaly on the eagles lower leg feathers on his right (facing) leg. When viewed with a strong magnifier, each granule of the sandblast finish reflects light in a random pattern; viewed collectively, the coin has a multi-faceted sparkle whose overall visual appeal is undeniable.
As previously stated, the condition of this coin is exemplary. It would be difficult to exceed the condition of this piece, and we cannot imagine how the eye appeal could be any stronger.(#8893)(Registry values: N10218) (NGC ID# 26YC, PCGS# 8893)
