    Description

    PCGS 1910 PR 64. Struck in the Roman Gold finish that is common only on gold proofs of 1909 and 1910, this piece shows the fine grain texture unique to that method of proofing. To the uninitiated this finish is sometimes confused with business strikes, but there is a very real and perceptible difference between the two when examined side by side. The obverse shows no shiny spots and to our eyes appears perfect. On the reverse there are a couple of stray hairlines below AMERICA and a couple of shiny areas in the fields. Altogether a beautiful example of this rare and short lived variant of the matte proofing process. One of only 11 pieces to have been so graded with 5 in better condition (2/93). (NGC ID# 28E4, PCGS# 8541)

    Weight: 8.36 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
