    PR62 Cameo 1873 Closed 3 Ten Dollar
    Low-Mintage Gold Rarity

    1873 $10 PR62 Cameo NGC. The Closed or Close 3, as seen on every proof specimen of the date, a low-mintage gold rarity with only 25 coins struck. The business strikes of the issue are also of the Closed 3 type, produced to the extent of a mere 800 pieces before the Open 3 fix came into play. While this proof specimen shows cloudiness over parts of the pale yellow-gold mirrors and a number of hairlines, the essential field-to-device contrast remains intact, thanks to the thick frost that covers the exquisitely detailed devices. Any proof example of this date is automatically a rarity. Census: 1 in 62 Cameo, 5 finer (11/10).
    Ex: Superior (5/2006), lot 1198.
    From The Las Vegas Collection, Part Two.(Registry values: P4) (NGC ID# 28FB, PCGS# 88813)
