    Beautiful Black-on-White Deep Cameo 1898 Proof Ten

    1898 $10 PR66 Deep Cameo NGC. Perhaps the most visually stunning proof gold coin in the Goodus Collection, this lovely eagle combines richly frosted devices and unfathomably deep fields to present a stark cameo contrast. Alloy spots, haziness, and contact marks are all absent, and hairlines are also expectantly few in number for the assigned grade. Two wispy hairlines in the right obverse field behind Liberty's portrait are, however, noted as pedigree markers, but these features have no effect on either the solid technical quality or the awe-inspiring eye appeal. Survivors of this issue are the most common proof Liberty eagles dated prior to 1900, but, even so, only 25-30 examples are believed extant out of the original mintage of just 67 pieces.
    From the Paul R. Goodus Collection. (NGC ID# 28G5, PCGS# 98838)

    Weight: 16.72 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
