Description

Ed Trompeter's 1877 Proof Liberty Eagle

1877 $10 PR64 Cameo NGC. Ex: Trompeter. This coin was previously offered as lot 8239 in our January 1999 FUN Signature Sale, where it was described as: "Another low total mintage date with only 797 business strikes and 20 proofs produced. No more than ten proofs survive today with two of those impounded in museums and at least one impaired, placing the 1877 on the same rarity level as the 1867, 1868, 1871, 1873, and 1875.
The rich orange-gold surfaces retain almost all of the original flash in the fields and there are very few hairlines present, giving this piece strong, almost full-Gem visual appeal. Fully struck on the star radials, there is just the slightest bit of softness noted on the hair curls and feathers on the eagle's leg. The devices are fully frosted and contrast noticeably against the deep mirrors in the fields. Identifiable by a faint alloy streak below the bun on the obverse and a tiny planchet flake next to star 2.
Ex: Garrett Collection (Bowers and Ruddy, 10/80), lot 1674; January 1999 FUN Signature Sale (Heritage, 1/99), lot 8239, where it realized $36,800. (PCGS# 88817)

Learn about consigning with us

What I most appreciated was how thorough you were when we initially met, how you were conservative in your estimates, not trying to get me to consign by giving false expectations, and then for delivering above and beyond on your commitment to me of a wonderful marketing campaign and a first rate catalog and photos, all of which resulted in a final total price realized that was nicely higher than what you had told me to expect.
