PR65 Deep Cameo 1900 Eagle

1900 Eagle PR65 Deep Cameo PCGS. At 120 pieces struck, the 1900 has the distinction of being the highest-mintage Liberty eagle proof issue, though all is not as it appears; standing in direct contrast to the mintage is Walter Breen's assertion, found in his Proof Coin Encyclopedia, that the date is "[l]ess often seen than its mintage suggests, and might legitimately be called rare." With recourse to contemporary certified population data, this assertion is ratified, if by a slim margin; the number of PCGS certification instances for the 1900 across all contrast designations is lower than that of the 1903, 1904, or 1907, all of which have smaller proof mintages.
More specifically, PCGS has 37 certification events in its Population Report, as of (11/09), with seven Deep Cameo coins, three Cameo pieces, and the rest not designated as either. This Gem Deep Cameo specimen is one of three so graded, with only three numerically finer Deep Cameo pieces certified by the same service.
This specimen offers gleaming yellow-gold fields which show only mild traces of orange-peel texture, which appear mostly around the upper obverse stars. The boldly frosted portrait and eagle have pale, icy color which contrasts dramatically with the fields, which are "black" at most angles. Close examination reveals only a handful of minuscule contact marks in the fields, though these minor flaws preclude an even finer designation.
This coin is part of a complete 10-piece 1900 proof set sold individually as lots 2075 to 2084.(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 28G7, PCGS# 98840)
