1912 $10 PR66 NGC....
Struck with the fine sandblast finish of the 1908 and 1911-15 proofs, this piece is somewhat deep in color with some mustard patina overall. Under magnification the matte finish shows innumerable sparkling facets from the random dispersal of light across the sandblast surfaces. As one would expect from a coin of this grade, there are no mentionable contact marks. The only ripple in the fabric of this lovely proof that could serve as an identifier for future pedigree purposes is a small pinpoint planchet imperfection at 3 o'clock near the reverse rim. With so few coins known today, it is not too surprising that this piece is one of the finest known. Obviously, a very rare and important offering of this key date matte proof Ten. Population: 5 in 66, 4 finer (1/05).(#8894) (Registry values: N10218) (NGC ID# 26YD, PCGS# 8894)
