A Landmark Offering
In fact, their high-grade rarity rankings put the date firmly in the middle of the pack, despite statements by the authors that "most of the survivors have been well cared for over the years" and "the typical proof 1910 encountered in today's market is overall smooth, if not virtually pristine." At the PR67 level, there are only five coins in the combined certified population with only three listed at PR68 or better (8/11).
Public auction offerings of Superb Gem specimens are even rarer than the coins themselves, and dedicated proof gold enthusiasts would be wise to take advantage of this opportunity. The luminous surfaces, pale yellow with a modest orange overtone, are exquisite and wholly original; two tiny milk spots are visible with close inspection of the area under Liberty's branch arm. The strike is bold, and wire rims appear in incomplete arcs along parts of both obverse and reverse. This lot is accompanied by the envelope in which the consignor kept the gold coins, in poor to fair condition with the passage of time but with the cursive listing of contents (including frequent use of "do" for "ditto") still legible.
