1913 $10 PR66 NGC....
The matte surfaces of this coin show a fine-grain texture with subtle red patina overlaid across the otherwise olive-gold surfaces. Identifiable by a tiny black spot at the center of the obverse where Liberty's ear would be, we see no post-striking defects on either side of this magnificent piece. If the intention of the matte proof process was to redirect the viewer's attention away from the flash of the brilliant, mirrored finished proofs and focus on the striking details, then we would say the effort was a success. This coin greatly resembles a medal with its finish and overall strength of striking details. One of the finest examples known of this rare issue. Population: 7 in 66, 5 finer (1/05).(#8895) (Registry values: N10218) (NGC ID# 28HH, PCGS# 8895)
