Important PR66 1910 Quarter Eagle

1910 $2 1/2 PR66 PCGS. The 1910 issue continues the Roman Gold or Satin Finish proofing process for gold proofs as begun the previous year. The official mintage for this issue was 682 pieces. This number is obviously either a typographical error in the mint report or most of the mintage was melted as unsold at year's end, as this year is one of the scarcer dates in the series, only exceeded in rarity by the 1909 and 1915. One estimate places the number of survivors in the range of 34-36 pieces, but that number may be a bit low. We estimate 100-125 may actually be extant. Akers only recorded 21 appearances in the 30-year survey he conducted, and that number obviously included several duplications. The surfaces of this piece are satiny and show a fine-grain texture that is quite unlike other proof years, making proof gold coins from this and the preceding year one of the shortest and certainly most desirable collecting areas for 20th century gold specialists. A slight reddish tinge is seen in the recessed areas and appealing olive patina frames each side. Most proof Indian quarter eagle dates exhibit dull, dark matte surfaces. Collector complaints about this matte finish, well documented in Roger Burdette's recent reference on the gold designs of 1907 and 1908, resulted in the Roman finish, which is brighter and less granular. The nature of the Saint-Gaudens and Bela Lyon Pratt designs kept the mint from offering them with the brilliant finish familiar on Liberty gold proofs. Population: 6 in 66, 0 finer (10/06).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 7KRP, PCGS# 7959)
