1889 $10 Liberty. PCGS graded Proof 63. Old green holder. Lovely golden toning. The obverse shows a scratch near stars 1 to 3. The 1889 is one of the very rare, often overlooked issues in Proof format. It is the rarest Proof Liberty $10 gold of the 1885-1907 years with approximately 12 coins reported out of an original mintage of only 45 Proofs. Creamy gold surfaces eddy and churn with almost mesmerizing reflective finish, while devices are in satin-frosted raised relief. Fully struck in all areas with pinpoint detailing on the tips of the feathers of the eagle and throughout Liberty's hair tresses and coronet. Only 45 Proofs struck. Pop 1; 2 finer in 64. (PCGS # 8829) .
Estimated Value $10,000 - 11,000.

 
Realized $10,925
