    The Trompeter 1898 Ten Dollar
    PR63 Ultra Cameo

    1898 $10 PR63 Ultra Cameo NGC. CAC. Ex: Trompeter. This Ultra Cameo Select proof bears one of the most famous proof gold pedigrees of all: Ed Trompeter, whose numismatic estate was purchased by Heritage for more than $15 million in 1998, setting a world record for a private coin transaction. The obverse of this proof Liberty eagle shows just a few light hairlines in pale yellow fields that show generous orange-peel texture, and that side looks great for a PR63 Ultra Cameo grade. The reverse shows two small clusters of contact on either side of the eagle's neck that contribute to the final technical designation, but the contrast on that side exceeds even the Ultra Cameo effect of the obverse. A great combination of beauty, rarity, and numismatic history that should prove irresistible to even the most discerning collectors.(Registry values: P1)
