This is a beautiful, bright proof. The surfaces show fine granularity and the fields have a semi-reflective quality--a finish that is only found on proof gold from these two years. There are no observable contact marks on either side of this magnificent coin.
The combined population data confirm that this issue and the 1908 are in the median echelons in terms of certified proofs, with nearly six dozen examples of the 1910 at both services combined, and 109 matte proof examples of the 1908. Those figures undoubtedly include numerous duplications, as the recorded mintage for the 1908 matte proof is only 101 pieces! The present PR66 coin offers the brighter Roman or satin finish. It is one of 14 examples so graded at NGC, with four coins finer, PR68 the finest (10/06).
