NGC 1911 PR 67. Once again, even though the official mintage for proofs of this year was 100 pieces, this is really not a meaningful number because so few coins are known today. Apparently the mint produced, on speculation, small numbers of these non-traditional proofs each year. The public was never as enthusiastic about matte proofs as mint officials were and, as a result, few were ordered and even fewer survive today. Estimates of survivors for this date range from a low of 12-15 to as high as 20 coins. We believe that perhaps as many as 25-35 separate pieces may survive today in all grades.
With the 1911 issue, the mint continued the matte proofing process which began in 1908. This piece shows thousands of tiny sparkling facets under magnification and the basic mustard color is overlaid by a thin veneer of olive-green. The surfaces are flawless. This is a true museum-quality piece that appears totally without blemish. We could find no trace of contact on either side, there are no shiny spots, we could not even find a lamination in the planchet.
This extraordinay piece of matte proof gold is tied with only two other coins according to the June population data (both graded by PCGS) for finest certified honors. The condition of this piece is unimprovable and we cannot imagine how the eye appeal could be any stronger. (NGC ID# 26GY, PCGS# 9208)

The marketing was exceptional from the photos to the ads in Civil War Times and North South Trader for the cross over people!!! I have had many emails from my Civil War collecting fraternity that saw these and I saw them at the national show in Nashville/Franklin in early December.View More Testimonials
