Lot Description
2000-W $10 Library of Congress Bimetallic Ten Dollars MS69 NGC. Ex: U.S. Vault Collection L/M. We are unaware of the significance of the pedigree as designated on the NGC insert. We do know that the Library of Congress ten dollar is the only ringed bimetallic coin type ever issued by the U.S. Mint, and is also the only commemorative with platinum as part of the alloy. The Uncirculated 2000-W has a low mintage and ranks among the modern commemorative keys. The present example is perfect aside from a single tiny lintmark (as coined) on the left (facing) wing.
