1904 $10 Liberty. PCGS graded Proof 64 Cameo. Light hint of gold toning. A few obverse ticks above Liberty's head. Only 108 Proofs issued. Bold strike with lovely light even color. Great eye appeal despite the minor handling. The Mint's practice of producing Proofs with semi-brilliant devices during the 1902-1907 years means that the 1904 is typical with "all brilliant" surfaces. And what an attractive coin it is! The surfaces on this handsome coin are judged by us to be bright gold in color, and quite mirrored on either side, very showy, with the grade supporting its fine quality. Of course, this Proof gold issue is rare in an absolute sense, there being very few survivors from the original mintage, this can be said of only a few. The number extant may be as few as 50 to 70, an unknown number of which are plagued by hairlines or moderate signs of handling. Regardless of the accuracy of this estimate, there can be no doubt that the present Proof 64 example represents a nice occasion for the Proof type collector to show his or her mettle. Pop 2; 1 in 65 cameo (PCGS # 88844) .
Estimated Value $17,000 - 19,000.

Realized $18,975
