Spectacular Gem Proof 1899 Liberty Ten Dollar1899 $10 PR65 PCGS. The comparatively "high" mintage of 86 proof Eagles struck this year doesn't accurately portray the rarity of this seldom-offered issue. Based on census figures, the actual number of survivors is probably closer to 40-45 coins. This beautifully mirrored reddish-orange specimen is notable for its almost peerless, glassy fields and ample contrast. Only an easily overlooked disturbance beneath the E in UNITED on the left side of the reverse seems to preclude an even loftier grade. It has been just over six years since we sold an 1899 proof Ten Dollar of comparable or finer quality, the Trompeter specimen which NGC certified as PR66 Cameo sold for what was then an astounding $57,500. Population: 6 in 65, 4 finer (12/04).
