    Description

    Proof 64 Eagle from the Bass and Garrett Collections

    1885 $10 PR64 Deep Cameo PCGS. The strike is bold and the devices heavily frosted with deeply mirrored fields exhibiting the orange peel texture often seen on proof coins of this period. From an original mintage of 65 pieces, it is estimated that only 15-18 pieces survive, this example being one of the finest, and the single specimen certified Deep Cameo. The only surface markers that might prove helpful in tracing the pedigree of this coin in the future is a tiny planchet void in the middle of a triangle described by star 3, star 4, and the tip of Liberty's nose, and a small contact mark at the end of the truncation of the bust.
    Ex: Harry W. Bass, Jr. Collection, Part II (Bowers and Merena, 10/1999), lot 1611, where it realized $21,850. Earlier John Work Garrett Collection, Stack's (3/1976), lot 489, which realized $5,250.
