Lot Description
1892 10C PR67 Cameo NGC. The beginning of the new Charles E. Barber dime design saw a mintage of 1,245 proofs, many preserved for present-day collectors, including some examples with cameo contrast. Needless to say, Superb Gem Cameos, such as the present glittering specimen, are vastly more elusive. Frosty, microscopically detailed reliefs stand out boldly in contrast to deeply mirrored fields. Only a hint of incipient light milky-gray can be seen on the reverse. Census: 13 in 67 Cameo, 0 finer (4/12). Ex: Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 5/2008), lot 143; Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 5/2009), lot 542.
