1912 $20 PR67 NGC. When we cataloged the 1994 ANA Sale, we were fortunate to have complete set of matte proof gold consigne...
The surfaces of matte proof gold vary from year to year because of the method of manufacture. Sometimes a finer grain finish was used, sometimes a coarser grain. The 1912 shows a fine-grain finish with darker color. The color is certainly not as dark as the 1908 coins, but significantly deeper than other years, especially the 1911. There is also a slight variation in hue on this piece, with the center of the obverse showing a slightly reddish cast. The surfaces are nearly perfect, as indicated by the Superb grade. The only vaguely noticeable surface flaw is a shiny spot on the knee of Liberty. Census: 11 in 67, 1 finer (12/06).(Registry values: N10218) (NGC ID# 26GZ, PCGS# 9209)
