Gem Ultra Cameo 1896 Ten Dollar1896 $10 PR65 Ultra Cameo NGC. Only 78 proof tens were struck in 1896, and both Breen and Akers have estimated that perhaps 20-25 pieces still exist today as recognizable proofs. That estimate range may be just a bit on the high side as both services combined have only certified 20 coins as non-Cameo, Cameo, and Ultra Cameo, and surely there are resubmissions among those 20 coins. A few 1896 tens are technically graded finer than PR65, but it is difficult to imagine a more appealing proof than this starkly contrasted coin. The orange-gold surfaces are very clean and the fields display unlimited depth of mirrored reflectivity. The devices are heavily frosted and provide strong "white on black" contrast.(#8836) (Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 28G3, PCGS# 8836)
