Description:
PCGS 1913 PR 67. Of the 99 proofs struck in 1913 it is believed that somewhere in the range of 30-45 coins may actually exist today, even though most authorities report that only two dozen examples are extant today. The 1913 continues the same matte or sandblast finish of proofing with the surface texture of this piece virtually identical to that seen on coins dated 1912. The surfaces of this piece have a markedly different color from the previous year, however, with a subdued green-gold predominant and a nicely contrasting orange-rose on the neck of the Native American. After close scrutiny we have finally found why this breathtaking coin did not grade even higher: when tilted just so, there is a short mark in the reverse field between (P)LURIBUS and (U)NITED, and there are also a couple of microscopic marks around the legs of the eagle. These are minute flaws, however, and we seriously doubt that they can be observed by the unaided eye, but we do feel obliged to point them out for the sake of accuracy. Needless to say, the eye appeal of this magnificent coin is unaffected by these trivial concerns. This is the only Proof 67 certified by either of the major services and as such it stands as the finest known example of this rare date. (PCGS# 8544)
