    1910 Indian Quarter Eagle, PR66
    Very Rare Any Finer

    1910 $2 1/2 PR66 PCGS. According to Mint records, an unusually large mintage of 682 proof quarter eagles was struck in 1910, but the issue is much more elusive than that large production total would indicate. Several researchers have suggested the mintage figure represents some sort of bookkeeping error, but Roger W. Burdette believes the coins were actually struck in response to collector demand. The unprecedented demand occurred because business-strike quarter eagles were not produced until late in the year, and numismatists trying to update their collections believed ordering proofs was their only option. The proofs were struck with what Walter Breen called the Roman Gold finish, which was essentially the same as the earlier matte finish, except the coins were not sandblasted. The slightest wear would render the proofs indistinguishable from regular-issue coins, and many impaired proofs are probably masquerading as business-strikes today.

    This delightful Premium Gem exhibits razor-sharp definition on all design elements, and the impeccably preserved orange-gold surfaces show the distinctive luster qualities of this format. Overall eye appeal is terrific. Population: 11 in 66, 2 finer (11/17).(Registry values: N7079)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 289J, PCGS# 7959)
