    Cameo Proof 1875 Eagle--A Major U.S. Rarity

    1875 $10 PR63 Cameo NGC. The 1875 Eagle is a landmark numismatic rarity whether found in business strike or proof format. Only 20 proofs were minted of this rare issue with an estimated 7-8 pieces believed extant today. Business strikes are even rarer with a mere 100 pieces and an estimated 4-6 coins believed known today in all grades. This is a deeply mirrored proof whose fields go "black" when held just so beneath a light. The devices are nicely frosted and provide a white cameoed effect against the illimitable depth of reflectivity in the fields. The grade is derived from light hairlining seen over both sides but there are no other significant or detracting surface problems evident on this important rarity.
    From the Richard Genaitis Collection.
