    Satiny, Upper-End PR 64 1910 "Roman Finish" Half Eagle

    1910 PR 64 NGC. Ex: Trompeter. While Mint records indicate that 250 proofs were produced, either the official mintage was incorrect or a great many were melted as unsold at year's end. We estimate that only 50-55 coins remain today in the proof format, making the 1910 not significantly more available than other 1908-15 half eagles.
    Again, as with the 1909, the "Roman Finish" was used on 1910 fives. On this piece the color is minutely less bright and the surfaces minutely more satiny, especially on the reverse. Traces of a wire rim can be seen at the upper left of the obverse, with a nearly complete wire rim around the reverse. A few faint hairlines account for the grade. This piece is identifiable by a tiny obverse "flyspeck" near the left base of the R in LIBERTY.
