    Grand PR64 Ultra Cameo 1897 Ten

    1897 $10 PR64 Ultra Cameo NGC. CAC. As noted by Garrett and Guth in their Encyclopedia of U.S. Gold Coins, "The 1897 eagle always comes with cameo contrast, often with heavy frosting on the central devices." This Ultra Cameo specimen takes the statement to its logical extreme, with thick golden-frost blanketing the broad, smooth areas of the portrait as well as the intricate details of the eagle's feathers. The yellow-gold mirrors show minor cloudiness, but this scarcely detracts from the outstanding contrast. Only a few minor hairlines scattered in the fields preclude an even finer designation. Census: 1 in 64 Ultra Cameo, 4 finer (11/09).(Registry values: P1)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 28G4, PCGS# 98837)
