1892 $10 Liberty. PCGS graded Proof 64 Cameo. A brilliant untoned example with excellent cameo contrast. Only 72 Proofs minted. One might assume the fairly high Proof production of 72 pieces would imply relative availability; however, there are very few high grade 1892 Proof examples that appear in the numismatic marketplace. And unlike dates in the latter half of the 1890s, only a handful of the Proofs of this year show cameo contrast, making the Cameo designation of the present example a bonus. Beautiful bright color, spot-free and with handsome arm's-length eye appeal, plus a bold strike and an absence of marks complete the package. A light toning streak in the lower reverse may have kept this beauty from a higher grade. Pop 2; 1 finer by a single point (PCGS # 88832) .
Estimated Value $20,000 - 22,000.

Realized $18,975
