Description:
Key Date 1873 Ten Dollar, Total Business Strike And Proof Mintage: 825 Pieces
1873 PR 62 Cameo NGC. Ex: Trompeter. The 1873 ten dollar is one of the premier dates in the series and one that is widely recognized by non-specialists, mostly because of its low total business strike and proof mintage of 825 pieces. Very few examples are known today of either, with perhaps 12-15 business strikes extant and a possible 7-8 proofs out of the original production run of only 25 pieces. The significance, of course, being that most big name gold collections over the past century have either elected to include a proof because of its availability in high grade (and the business strike's unavailability), or because of the relative rarity of business strikes vs. proofs.
The surfaces of this piece are obviously hairlined, a feature which solely accounts for the grade. Other distinguishing marks are a contact mark above star 3 and a slight abrasion along the lower jawline of Liberty. To appreciate the rarity of this date in the marketplace, in his quest for excellence it was routine practice for Ed Trompeter to upgrade coins in his collection. This PR 62 was the finest offered to him in his long career of collecting and represents one of the finer pieces available to collectors still. Population: 1 in 62, only 5 finer (11/98).
Ex: Kagin's 325 (9/81), lot 2067. (NGC ID# 28FB, PCGS# 8813)

I received the catalog and was very impressed with its color illustrations, descriptions and attractive layout. (It has better production values than the New York houses.)
