1912 $2 1/2
The matte or sandblast finish was again used on gold proofs of this year, but the texture of this coin is markedly different than that on the 1908-11 proofs. This piece features a fine grain surface that sparkles with millions of tiny individual granules. The color is distinctly lighter than either the NGC Proof 66 1908 or even the PCGS Proof 67 1911. The obverse is flawless. If one looks close enough on the reverse there are a couple of tiny marks, or shiny spots, around the motto. These are barely perceptible to the unaided eye, and obviously have no affect on the coin's grade or overall attractiveness as evidenced by the Proof 66 designation. One of the finest examples known of this rare date, only 4 others have been so graded by PCGS (6/94) with another 2 in a higher grade. (NGC ID# 289L, PCGS# 7961)
