Gem Roman Matte Proof 1910 Half Eagle

1910 $5 PR66 NGC. The official mintage for proof Half Eagles from 1910 is the highest of any date of its type, listed at 250 pieces. This figure is either incorrect or a great many were melted at year's end as unsold because the 1910 is approximately twice as rare as the 1908, of which fewer pieces were struck, and of equal rarity with the 1909, an issue with only 78 proofs officially minted. Akers only recorded 17 auction sales of proofs over the decades he surveyed major gold auctions, and while more examples obviously exist, we estimate that no more than 50-55 coins are extant in all grades. The 1910 continues the two-year tradition of using the Satin or Roman Gold finish on gold proofs. Many business strikes were similarly finished, but there can be no doubt about the method of manufacture of this lovely, fully struck proof. The surfaces have a very fine granular texture and appear to be essentially as struck. With the unaided eye, one fails to notice any blemishes or spots that might lessen this splendid coin's pristine status, but under close examination, a couple of slightly shiny areas can be seen in the reverse field. Population: 10 in 66, 8 finer (11/04).
