Liberty Head $10
1863 $10 PF

Description & Analysis

As the Civil War unfolded, demand for proof coins dropped as reflected in the paltry mintage of 30 pieces for the year 1863. NGC has not graded any examples of this date without their Cameo or Ultra Cameo designations, and with so few struck it makes sense that the dies retained their heavy cameo producing frost through the entire mintage of 30 pieces.
