Lot Description
1863 10C MS66 S NGC. Only 14,000 business strikes were made of the 1863 dime, which is relatively rare in all grades. PCGS and NGC combined have certified fewer than 75 examples, only about a dozen of which grade MS66 and above. NGC has assigned the Star designation to just two Premium Gems, and no higher-graded pieces. The untoned surfaces of the specimen offered here displays partially prooflike fields, as is typical for high-grade specimens of this issue. A sharp strike is noted on the design elements, except for weakness in some of the kernels of the upper left (facing) wreath and on the bowknot. A few minor, unobtrusive ticks on Liberty's cheek and in the left (facing) obverse field are mentioned for accuracy.
