Description

Roman Gold 1910 Proof Half Eagle

1910 $5 PR66 NGC. Struck in the Roman Gold finish that is common only on gold proofs of 1909 and 1910, this piece shows the fine grain texture unique to that method of proofing. To the uninitiated this finish is sometimes confused with business strikes, but there is a very real and perceptible difference between the two when examined side by side. The obverse shows no shiny spots and to our eyes appears perfect. On the reverse there is a slightly shiny area in the field behind the eagle's neck. Altogether a beautiful example of this rare and short lived variant of the matte proofing process. Population: 11 in 66, 8 finer (1/05).(#8541) (Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 28E4, PCGS# 8541)
