    1910 Double Eagle, Satin Finish, PR65

    1910 $20 PR65 NGC. The recorded number of 1910 proof double eagles produced, 167 examples, appears to be on the high side, but it is true that there are considerable numbers certified at the major grading-authentication services. Garrett and Guth comment concerning the issue that "this is one of the more available dates in Proof condition [sic]. Sales to collectors recovered after tumbling in 1909, the year after the unpopular matte Proofs were sold. The Roman or satin finish coins proved much more popular with collectors. The 1910 issue is available in most grades, including 17 examples reported by NGC and PCGS as PF-66, four as PF-67, and even two coins as PF-68. This date ranks as the seventh scarcest of the 10 Proof coin series." The authors also confirm the existence of a single matte proof bearing the 1910 date, last seen in 1998. Between the two grading services combined, there are 71 proof examples of this issue coined--as always, factoring in an unknown number of duplications--and of course there are likely still numerous uncertified examples nestling in old-time collections (or perhaps as unrecognized proofs in some newer collections).
    The present Gem example bears the unmistakable hallmarks of a proof striking, including crisply delineated details on Liberty's head, hair, toes, and the Capitol building, for example. A few small contact marks, none individually severe, both keep this piece from an even higher grade and perhaps place it in the category of "lovely but more affordable as a type coin" for some fortunate and forthright numismatist. The yellowish-gold surfaces nonetheless boast much appeal. Census: 8 in 65, 18 finer (11/07).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 26GX, PCGS# 9207)
