Lot Description
1846 10C MS61 NGC. Among early Philadelphia Seated dimes, the date that has received the most publicity by far is the 1844, nicknamed the "Little Orphan Annie" for decades. By comparison, the 1846 dime has played "Sandy" to the 1844, lower in mintage and far more elusive, yet accorded second billing at best. Recent years, however, have been more kind to the 1846. This MS61 example is the single finest piece certified by NGC (6/09). Dappled rose-gold and blue-green shadings drape surfaces that show surprisingly few abrasions for the grade assigned. Well struck and attractive.
