Lot Description
1898 10C PR68 Deep Cameo PCGS. Ex: Bruce Scher. Only 735 proofs were struck in 1898, but the quality of those coins was uniformly high, with a higher percentage of cameo coins available of this date than any others we can think of from this era. At the PR68 level, this piece is almost without peer. It is the single finest certified by PCGS, and one of only five Proof 68 Deep Cameos certified by both services combined (3/09). None are certified any finer. The fields on this piece are deeply mirrored and shimmer overall. The devices are noticeably frosted, with strong contrast evident on each side. The surfaces are mostly brilliant, displaying just the slightest hint of natural patina that has begun to form on each side. A remarkably well preserved specimen. From The Joseph C. Thomas Collection.
