1902 $10 Liberty. NGC graded Proof 65. Both sides are smoothly mirrored in the familiar "all brilliant" finish of 1902, with bright, reflective fields supporting sharp, crisp devices. Even yellow-gold color is seen throughout. Fortunately for bidders, there are no blemishes found, nor is there anything else that is worthy of note in a negative way. Instead, the entire coin is exemplary in its detail, beauty, originality. With such strong technical merits and captivating eye appeal, this coin would serve as a centerpiece in even the most advanced collection of U.S. Proof gold. 113 Proofs struck. Extremely low population at this grade level: Pop 2; 3 finer; 1 in 66; 2 in 67. (PCGS # 8842) .

Features unique to the Proofs this year include: Low date, open 9, die polish around eye and at LIBERTY; devices semi-brilliant, as in other denominations of this year; die file marks left of lovelock, mostly slanting down to right. Reverse: Similar to 1901, with even more die polish at missing and incomplete feathers, but without the die file mark in upper left horizontal stripes.
Estimated Value $30,000 - 33,000.

Realized $28,750
