Impressive 1906 Ten Dollar, PR641906 $10 PR64 PCGS. The proof 1906 eagle is a 20th century rarity. Its mintage was a paltry 77 coins, of which Jeff Garrett and Ron Guth, in their Encyclopedia of U.S. Gold Coins, say: "Perhaps as many as half ... remain today, although the population reports give the impression of a higher survival rate thanks to resubmissions that have not been removed."
Rich orange-gold patination adorns both sides of this near-Gem proof, each of which is imbued with a splash or two of delicate sky-blue and lavender. We note some cameo-like characteristics, especially on the reverse, and a solid strike leaves crisp definition on the design elements. A few stray, inoffensive hairlines interspersed with die polish lines in the fields do not detract from the well preserved surfaces, nor do a couple of obverse minute toning spots. Housed in a green-label holder. Population: 13 in 64, 7 finer (6/08).(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 28GD, PCGS# 8846)
