Description:
Near-Gem 1876 Proof Ten From The Collection Of Ed Trompeter
1876 PR 64 Cameo NGC. Ex: Trompeter. The production of proof tens increased to 45 pieces in 1876, but the number of survivors today is still pitifully small with an estimated 14-18 pieces believed extant. This is one of the finest pieces known (as with almost all of Trompeter's coins) and it shares finest known honors with obvious multiple submissions from a PCGS certified coin (or two) according to the November data.
The lovely pinkish tinted orange-gold surfaces are lightly hairlined, but bold cameo contrast is displayed on each side between the bright, frosted devices and deep, black fields. We note a couple of small S-shaped lint marks between stars 1 and 2 on the obverse, and a shallow hairline between stars 4 and 6 is visible when the coin is tilted at certain angles along with another behind the head of Liberty. Undoubtedly one of the finest 1876 proofs to be offered at public auction in the past half century. (NGC ID# 28FE, PCGS# 8816)
