    Breathtaking 1906 Liberty Ten, PR67 Cameo

    1906 $10 PR67 Cameo NGC. This breathtaking Superb Gem Cameo proof exhibits incredible brilliance, with light yellow devices that appear to float across the watery, mirrored fields. Every detail has completely transferred from the dies to the finished coin. The intricate hair detail on the obverse and the feather detail on the reverse are bold and sharp. The surfaces are pristine and only affected by a few tiny planchet flakes that were probably present before the coin was minted.
    The mintage of 1906 proof eagles was a mere 77 coins, second lowest of all the 20th century dates behind the 74 proofs struck in 1907. A single die pair was used for all 77 proofs. A raised die lump at the right center of the 9 immediately identifies the obverse proof die, differentiating true proofs from prooflike business strikes.
    Possibly as many as 35 to 40 examples still survive today according to Garrett and Guth. David Akers places the survival at 25 to 30 coins; Walter Breen suggests 30 to 35 pieces. Only a complete census would pinpoint the number known, although such a census has never been attempted, to our knowledge. 1906 proof eagles are rarely encountered in grades better than PR64. The average NGC and PCGS combined grade for all 69 certified pieces is just 63.6. The present offering is only the second PR67 1906 eagle we have offered since 1993, an exceptional opportunity for the connoisseur. Census: 3 in 67 Cameo, 0 finer (2/10).(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 28GD, PCGS# 88846)

    Weight: 16.72 grams
