1901 $10 Liberty. NGC graded Proof 67 Cameo. NGC serial #1869838-005. Rich orange and golden toning. Only 85 proofs struck. Any $10 Proof Gold piece is rare in Gem condition or higher. For whatever the reason, they never made many of these and few survive in high grades. This Super High-end Proof 67 coin will light up a dark room! Right up front, we'll say that it is Population 1. It is by far the finest certified to date, and it also happens that it is the only Proof 67 graded. There are no "tied with" specimens to get in the way. It has mirrors that are deep as the abyss. Sleek, swaying, the mirror-like effect pulls you right in. Considering most coins struck after 1900 have very little contrast, this beauty is nothing less than amazing! Lovely cameo contrast. There is warm peachy golden afterglow from the mirrors and they are pristine as well, completely devoid of toning spots. Liberty and the details on the eagle are perfectly drawn as well. Smacked hard by the dies, they seem to glow with thick bright deep gold frost. A spectacular coin for a one-of-a-kind Proof Gold collection. This piece offers an incredible opportunity for any collector seeking an eye popping piece to headline their set. Pop 1; None finer at NGC. (PCGS # 8841) .
Estimated Value $70,000 - 80,000.
