Description

PCGS 1909 PR 65. Gold proofs of 1909 and 1910 are of great interest to gold collectors because of the type of matte finish used in just these two years. This so-called "Roman Gold" finish is a curious mixture between a brilliant and matte proof, giving the coin a semi-brilliant, satiny appearance. These have often been confused with high-grade business strikes, but seen side by side one can easily see a difference in the texture of the surfaces. This is an extraordinary example that shows no obvious contact marks or shiny spots on either side. The bright yellow-gold surfaces show just a trace of light reddish color. Very rare. Population: 3 in 65, 1 finer. (NGC ID# 25ZS, PCGS# 8540)
