$2.50 - 1910 PCGS PR64 CAC - $21500
CAC APPROVED PCGS PR64 1910 ROMAN FINISH $2.50
The original mintage figure of Proof 1910 quarter eagles is controversial. There were 682 reportedly struck but this number seems absurdly high considering the next highest figure for Indian Head quarter eagles is 236 in 1908. It is believed that 100-125 are known and this is among the more available Proofs of this date. It is also one of two issues of this type to be struck in the so-called Roman finish which I find far more aesthetically pleasing than the conventional Matte Proof finish of 1908 and 1911-1915.
This piece is totally fresh to the market and it is accompanied by an old brown paper coin envelope which reads as follows:
"2 1/2 Dollars 1910
only 682 struck in Proof
Mat (sic) Proof $20.00" In later pencil, the value $450.00 is placed over $20.00.
The obverse is extremely choice and grades full PR65 with just a small freckle on the Native American's jaw; the reverse shows a thin circular line below ES. OF. AM. This piece has not been conserved as have most Matte Proof gold coins and the color is a deep, glowing yellow-gold.
There have been three CAC approved PR64 1910 quarter eagles sold at auction since 2016. The most recent sale was in May 2016 for $21,150. In April 2016, another piece brought $25,850. In January 2016 another piece sold for $22,325.
This would be a perfect type coin for the collector seeking a single Proof Indian Head quarter eagle for his set.
CAC has approved seven in this grade with 16 finer.
