Description

    1913 PR 64 NGC. Of the 165 proofs reportedly minted, the best estimate of the number of survivors extant today is 60-75 pieces. It would be a mistake to call coins of this date "common," because they certainly are not, however, relative to other dates in this illustrious series, one is more likely to locate a 1913 before, say, a 1909 or a 1915.
    The 1913 continues the tradition of sandblast or matte proofing, and while the literature on matte proofs clearly states there is no textural difference between the two years, we note a dissimilarity between this piece and a 1912 in both color and finish. The surface of this piece is much "tighter," that is, less granular, than a 1912 and lighter in color. We draw attention to this because there are a few coins in some years that are known to have been struck using a slightly different proofing process.
    There are virtually no contact marks and the brighter, lighter surfaces are exceptionally pleasing and there is the slightest bit of green-gold patina on each side. A very choice example known for both the date as well as the type. (NGC ID# 289M, PCGS# 7962)
