Description:
Gleaming PR64 Cameo 1890 Eagle
Mintage 63 Pieces
1890 $10 PR64 Cameo PCGS. Though Mint records list a proof mintage of 63 pieces for the 1890 eagle, the PCGS Population Report suggests survival of 25 to 35 specimens, which is more in line with contemporary attrition rates and the diminished mintage of proof eagles in the following year. This elegant PR64 Cameo example has delicate orange-peel texture to the mirrors and splashes of apricot-peach on the reverse of an otherwise pale gold coin. Light patina does not dim the essential field-to-device contrast, particularly on the obverse with its magnificently frosted portrait. Light hairlines (not to be confused with the holder-scratches that may be visible in the images) combine to account for the grade. Population: 3 in 64 Cameo, 0 finer (6/12).(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 28FV, PCGS# 88830)
