Description:
Very Rare 1878 Ultra Cameo Ten Dollar, PR63
1878 $10 PR63 Ultra Cameo NGC. Only 20 proof tens were struck of the 1878 ten dollar, and a reasonable estimate is that around 7-10 pieces are extant today as recognizable proofs. Only seven pieces have been certified by both of the major services combined, and only two pieces have been graded numerically finer than this piece (a pair of non-cameo coins). This is a well-balanced piece that has light hairlining in the fields, which accounts for the PR63 grade. The fields are very deeply mirrored and the devices show heavy mint frost that gives the coin the two-toned, heavily cameo effect that is so desirable. Light, even, reddish-gold surfaces with no distracting contact marks or planchet flaws. We aren't even going to try and trace the pedigree of this coin, as it has been off the market for at least 30 (and probably closer to 40) years.(#98818) (Registry values: P4) (NGC ID# 28FG, PCGS# 98818)
