    Description

    NGC 1906 PR 65. A rare proof issue in which attrition has taken a heavy toll. Of the 77 proofs struck, only 25-30 are believed extant by Akers, and 30-35 by Breen. This is really quite a lovely coin that was made in the no-contrast method of proofing popular after the turn of the century. The surfaces are bright with a shimmering mirrored finish. There are a few inconsequential hairlines in the fields, but these are barely visible to the unaided eye and really have no impact on the overall attractiveness of the piece. Population: 1 in 65, none are finer. (NGC ID# 28GD, PCGS# 8846)

    Weight: 16.72 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
