    Finest Known 1890 Proof Ten

    1890 PR 66 Cameo NGC. Ex: Trompeter. A rare coin with only 63 proofs originally struck, Akers estimates that perhaps only 17-20 pieces exist today, Breen 20-25. We tend to agree with the Akers' estimate as only 18 examples have thus far been certified by both services (11/98). This is surely the most visually appealing of the few surviving proofs, as it is the finest known piece, typical of the Trompeter style of acquisition. The fields are deeply mirrored and go "black" when tilted just so, and the heavy frost on the devices provides a sharp cameo contrast against the reflective fields. There is a pronounced "orange peel" appearance to the fields. As an identifier, a tiny hairline-like mark is seen behind the hair bun in the right obverse field. A beautiful example. (NGC ID# 28FV, PCGS# 8830)
