1909 $10 Indian. NGC graded Proof 64. A hint of light toning. Arrestingly beautiful soft satin luster from top to bottom. Proofs of this year begin a two-year run in 1909-10 of using the Roman gold finish, a cross between matte and semi-brilliant Proofing technique that created eye-poppingly beautiful coins. This piece is more than a little satiny, and infinite minute diamond-like sparkles of light emit amidst the deeper richer golden color. The surfaces are choice throughout with no marring marks or spoiling spots to deface its bright, original finish. The field is unaffected by even the most minor impairments. Proof Indian tens were given two and sometimes three blows from the dies to completely render their design in full detail. And all details are finely replicated down to the tiniest eagle feather or hair strand on Liberty. A first-class Proof of this rare coin. Only 74 proofs struck. Pop 21; 24 finer at NGC (PCGS # 8891) .
Estimated Value $18,000 - 20,000.

Realized $22,425
