Description

1910 Quarter Eagle, PR64
Second Year of the Roman Gold Finish

1910 $2 1/2 PR64 NGC. CAC. The official mintage of 682 proofs for the 1910 suggests either a bookkeeping error, or perhaps many more were struck than needed as James Longacre did for the 1859-1861 proofs. Whatever the case, the number of survivors is in line with other dates in the series. Somewhere between 75 and 90 coins are believed known, suggesting an actual original mintage, or net mintage after melting, of 175 to 200 proofs.
The 1910 is special as it was the second and final date to be struck in the so-called Roman Gold finish. This was basically a proof struck on an untreated (nonsandblasted) planchet. As such they have a brighter appearance than traditional matte proofs and are sometimes confused with circulation strikes, except for the extreme sharpness of strike. This proof certainly shows the fullness of strike expected. The surfaces are light orange-gold with very few post-striking impairments visible even with a loupe.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 7KRP, PCGS# 7959)
