    Enchanting Select Proof Nicholas 100 Perpera

    Nicholas I gold "Bare Head" Proof 100 Perpera 1910 PR63+ Ultra Cameo NGC, Vienna mint, KM12, Fr-1. Mintage: 25. A stunning example of this iconic and beloved early 20th century rarity that is seldom seen in any format, let alone as a proof. The Standard Catalog of World Coins lists the mintages for this single-year design as a scant 301 in business strike format and a paltry 25 in elevated proof state. On the present example, both sides of the design are highlighted by considerable frost that has far fewer breaks than are typically encountered and is emboldened by the deep reflectivity that remains in the fields. In fact, this is the sole finest example graded by NGC or PCGS, with a single other PR63 UCAM at NGC, but the "+" grade on the present setting this coin apart as slight finer technical quality. As such, if not the finest extant, this coin must certainly being among the finest! For the collector of large and rare gold type (a collecting genre that over the years has seen perhaps the most avid and consistent interest), an opportunity that should certainly carry paramount importance.
