Lot Description
1856-S 10C MS64 PCGS Secure. CAC. Only one finer example of this issue has been certified by PCGS with none finer at NGC. The average certified grade of all 1856-S dimes is only about XF40, clearly illustrating the high grade rarity of this date. The original mintage of the date was 70,000 coins, and only one variety is currently recognized, in two distinct die states. This example is an early die state from perfect obverse and reverse dies. both sides are brilliant with satiny silver luster and reflective fields. Hints of champagne and iridescent toning are evident. The design elements are bold. The advanced Seated dime specialist will be amazed at its overall quality. From The Bob Simpson Collection of Seated Dimes.
