This is a super example of a tougher matte proof Lincoln date.
Extra matte surfaces are undisturbed and appear smooth all over. A good luster does add to the totally original golden brown/pale brown/faded red colors. Only with a strong glass can you detect a few tiny toning dots on upper obverse. Lincoln and all of the details are sharply struck. The eye appeal is very bold!
PCGS 17, NGC 11, CAC 10. The last PCGS CAC piece to sell in auction brought $3,995.00 01/2015. Prior to that, these were bringing $5,500.00 for a few years. yet another coin the market has forced “on sale”! We assure you, this is a terrific SUPERB GEM piece.
