1912 $10 Indian. NGC graded Proof 66. A gorgeous Matte Proof $10 gold coin. Only 83 Proofs struck. Struck on the Mint's medal press with a satin finish and then finely sandblasted to the finish you see now, similar to the 1908 and 1911-15 Proofs. This piece is a deep orange-gold color with areas of mustard patina in the undertone. Under magnification the sandblast effect shows minute diamond sparkles the random spread of light across the surface. Razor-sharp strike, and like all those before it which we have been selected to auction, it has boldness at the centers that will amaze anyone who views it. An exemplary coin, bold, impressive.

One should expect a superlative coin from this grade. There are no contact hits or copper toning spots. Few coins like it are known today, which is why this discussion includes a population ranking: Pop 7; 5 finer in 67. (PCGS # 8894) .
Estimated Value $45,000 - 55,000.
Ohringer Family Trust Holdings.

Realized $62,100
