1896 $10 Liberty. NGC graded Proof 66 Ultra Cameo PQ. CAC Approved. Lovely rich golden toning. Well struck. 78 struck. A landmark condition for an 1896 Eagle, and one delightfully fresher and purer than most because of its lovely cameo contrast. The devices are heavily frosted ("ultra") while the fields sport deeply mirrors, smooth as glass, reflective and deep, with visual beauty that boarders on extraordinary. From a Proof mintage for the date which is well within the average for the decade of the 1890s, perhaps only half that many or a few more currently reside in collections, the rest are gone. The present specimen stands high in the roster of physically attractive pieces. A sharp and appealing gem that will appeal to a wide field of collectors, especially when note is made of the following census: Pop 3; 1 finer in 66 Star. (PCGS # 8836) .
Estimated Value $45,000 - 55,000.
Ohringer Family Trust Holdings.

Realized $83,375
