1899 $10 Liberty PCGS Proof 66. PCGS graded Proof 66+DCAM PQ. CAC Approved. Boldly struck and fully brilliant with no detracting spots. This proof rarity offers splendid contrast, incredible frost on the devices and pristine surfaces that offer bold reflectivity. There are likely 50 to 70 known today from only 86 minted. This outstanding coin is nudging ever so close to the finest graded by PCGS, and one that has earned the ultimate contrast designation. There is a tiny cluster of three pieces graded this high, with just two seen a notch finer of this date. The surfaces glitter with reflectivity and contrasting frost on the undisturebed devices. These late 19th Century proofs were some of the finest quality coins struck at the Philadelphia Mint, and remain a pinnacle of production which would be difficult to surpass even today. Pop 3; 2 finer in 67 (PCGS # 98839) Estimated Value $50,000-UP

Ex. US Gold from a prominent midwestern family collection.

Realized $82,250
