Out of all 1oz panda proofs, 1996 is the toughest year to find a flawless example. For the 1oz silver, there’s 5 PF70s out of 1,100 graded & there’s zero PF70s in 1oz gold. The 1996 S10Y is really common to find rub free, but is the most prone for spotting/ haze/ surface issues (out of all the panda proofs). I’ve personally handled hundreds of the 1996 S10Y’s & this is the first example I’ve owned 100% spot/ haze free (no matter how scrupulous under magnification) on top of flawless surfaces... 100% problem free. This is really the type of panda that shouldn’t exist. A true masterpiece of it’s kind.
