Conditionally Scarce 1899 Twenty PR63 Deep Cameo1899 $20 PR63 Deep Cameo NGC. From the original mintage of 84 pieces, Garrett and Guth (2006) opine that fewer than 30 still survive. Their estimate compares favorably with that of Walter Breen, who noted in his Encyclopedia (1988): "Probably 35-40 proofs survive, some impaired." This Select proof specimen matches the only example in the Smithsonian collection, which is also graded PR63. The current offering, however, also comes with Deep Cameo contrast that increases the eye appeal as well as the value of the coin. Fully struck with majestically deep reflectivity in the fields, the richly frosted devices have a rather coppery reddish-gold cast that is quite appealing. Carefully preserved overall, there are a few slide marks on the cheek, and some faint hairlines in the left obverse field that prevent an even finer grade assessment. A conditionally scarce item that should excite the interest of any specialist in this immensely popular series. (Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 26EL, PCGS# 99115)
