1913 $10 PR66 NGC. CAC....
'Beautiful Work of Numismatic Art'
The present-day numismatists have been much more kind to the matte proofs. Garrett and Guth write of the 1913 proof eagles:
"The fine sandblast finish used in 1912 was also used to coin these Proofs. This date ranks as the third-scarcest issue of the series by a tiny margin in gem Proof or finer grades. Eye appeal and surface quality remain superb, and these coins are truly beautiful works of numismatic art."
The surfaces on the present Premium Gem are khaki-colored, with medium-sized granules appearing from sandblasting. One minute contact mark occurs in the reverse field below the T in UNITED, but the surfaces otherwise appear flawless. NGC has certified eight pieces at the PR66 level with seven finer, while PCGS has seen three submissions in PR66 with two finer, the totals as usual comprising some duplicates (11/11).(Registry values: N10218) (NGC ID# 28HH, PCGS# 8895)
