The color of this coin closely resembles a 1908 with its deep brownish-khaki coloration. The depth of color is really quite remarkable and would serve to accent and highlight any surface flaws on the coin. The only flaw we can find, though, is a tiny, almost imperceptible mark on one of the stars above the olive branch, and there is also a slightly darker spot of color on the right wing of the eagle.
This magnificent coin is tied for finest certified with 2 others, 1 from PCGS (6/96), and 1 other from NGC (6/96). It is a coin of unsurpassable beauty that we doubt could be equalled, much less bettered, in terms of either technical grade or eye appeal.
The tenth and final coin from an original proof set from 1913, the minor coins having been offered as a single lot elsewhere, and the gold proofs sold individually. (NGC ID# 26H2, PCGS# 9210)
