1912 $10 Indian. NGC graded Proof 66. A stunning Gem matte Proof with uniform golden-tan surfaces and completely free from shiny spots. We note a microscopic hairline below the motto, probably from a hair that adhered to the die when struck. This is mentioned mainly for identification purposes. Struck in the a similar sand-blast finish to the 1911 Proof Indian tens, though it is slightly lighter than the darker matte color seen in the previous years, the Philadelphia Mint was trying to please a disparate clientele with these, varying the sand-blasting method for Proofs year by year. The darker matte finish gave way to this lighter finish in 1912. Only 83 Proofs minted. Pop 8; 6 finer with 5 in 67, 1 in 68 (PCGS # 8894) .
Estimated Value $50,000 - 55,000.

Realized $44,850
