    Description

    Important 1875 PR 64 Liberty Ten Dollar, Ex: Trompeter

    1875 PR 64 PCGS. Ex: Trompeter. The undisputed key to the With Motto series of Liberty eagles and one of the rarest and most coveted of all U.S. coins, regardless of denomination. Only 100 business strikes and 20 proofs were produced. Probably no more than 5-6 business strikes remain along with 7-8 proofs, two of which are in museums. The golden-orange surfaces show light hairlining in the fields, but the depth of reflectivity is full and undiminished on each side, and the strongly contrasting creamy-golden devices provide a sharp cameo contrast. The striking details are just a bit soft on the hair curls, star radials, and the fletchings of the upper arrow on the reverse. There are a pair of identifying contact marks in the obverse field by stars 4 and 5, and several well scattered alloy spots, the most noticeable of which is located in the middle of the D in UNITED on the reverse. Population: 3 in 64, none finer (2/00).
