Lot Description
1874-CC Seated Liberty Dime. Arrows. Fine-12 (PCGS). OGH. Warm steel gray with lilac gray highlights. The undisputed "king" of the Liberty Seated dime series; its mintage&mdash;not the lowest in the series&mdash;was a scant 10,817 pieces with a total face value of just $1,081.70, representing a paltry amount of small change production in an era of heady commercial times in and around Carson City. Fairly smooth and not heavily marked&mdash;more often than not this date is found with "ground recovery" surfaces, rough and unappealing, but the present coin is a pleasing exception to its usual reputation. Housed in an OGH for decades now&mdash;why tamper with a good thing? When a&nbsp;'74-CC dime comes to auction, many are the specialists who sit up and take notice; unfortunately, just one serious bidder goes home with the prize. We hope it's you!<br /> <br /> <strong>Numismatic Reflections by Q. David Bowers<br /> </strong>A very pleasing example, exceptional surface quality for this grade.
