1892 $10 Liberty. NGC graded Proof 62 Ultra Cameo. Lovely golden toning on both sides. However you choose to measure it, this is a very scarce Proof ten. The frosted devices and well mirrored surface make for an "ultra" cameo contrast and effective color combination. However, unlike many of the 1890s Proofs, this piece is not among the finest known or certified. Its grade is derived from a small mark in the field below the T of UNITED. It is interesting to see, as well, that it was struck from well-prepared dies that imported a sound and in point of fact, a bold design in all areas.Only 72 minted. Pop 1; 2 finer in 65. (PCGS # 98832) .
Estimated Value $8,000 - 9,000.

Realized $7,763
