Extremely Rare Select Proof 1878 Ten Dollar

1878 $10 PR63 PCGS. There were only 20 proof eagles minted in this year, making it one of the rarest dates of the "With Motto" series. We estimate that only 7-8 pieces exist from the original mintage. As one would expect, there are noticeable hairlines on both obverse and reverse, but the eye appeal is much better than one would expect from a PR63, and this coin is definitely at the upper-end of this grade. There is milky-orange toning on both obverse and reverse. The proofs of this date are identifiable by a plain die scratch (as struck) joining the inner points of the 8th and 9th stars. There is, also, a curved line joining the B and E of LIBERTY. The reverse is the type of the 1876-77. There are no singular identifying marks or spots on either side. Population: 2 in 63, 2 finer (10/04).(#8818) (Registry values: P4) (NGC ID# 28FG, PCGS# 8818)

The pre-sale publicity was more than I imagined, and the actual catalog better than I had expected - and my expectations were high!
