Garden City, NY, USALive Auction
Description: 10c 1884 PCGS PR66+ and an absolutely splendid specimen. Lavender-golden central iridescence is framed by electric blue iridescent peripheries. The underlying surfaces easily justify the grade, and our realistic estimate certainly makes this offering quite compelling. Only 875 proofs of this date were coined, and the overwhelming number of survivors from that mintage are clearly inferior to this jewel. Est. $1350.
