    1910 Quarter Eagle, Magnificent PR66 ★
    Scarce 'Roman Gold' Variant

    1910 $2 1/2 PR66 ★ NGC. The purported mintage figure of 682 proof quarter eagles struck in 1910 as given in the Guide Book and other sources is almost certainly in error, given the certified populations. NGC and PCGS have seen only about 160 examples. Apparently, most of the mintage was either melted by the Mint as unsold, but not removed from the reported mintage, or the figure of 682 pieces might represent a bookkeeping error. Regardless, it is likely that the Mint distributed no more than 200 proof quarter eagles in 1910.

    The 1910 proofs such as the Premium Gem with Star example offered here were struck in the "Roman Gold" finish as seen in 1909. These tend to be lighter yellow in color and more reflective than the matte surfaces used in 1908. The design elements are razor-sharp and both sides are immaculately preserved. One cannot argue the NGC Star designation as this piece yields magnificent eye appeal. Census: 2 in 66 , 13 finer, 3 with Star (12/13).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 7KRP, PCGS# 7959)

    Weight: 4.18 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
