Lot Description
1874-CC 10C Arrows Fine 15 PCGS. The Carson City Mint produced just 10,817 dimes in 1874, all from a single die pair. This pleasing midgrade specimen is typical, with the obverse a couple of grades sharper than the reverse. This specimen has VF obverse details and VG reverse details, resulting in the PCGS assigned grade of Fine 15. Nearly all survivors are extensively circulated, with a small number of Mint State examples known. Although minor imperfections are noted, this tan and dark gray piece is virtually problem-free with excellent eye appeal. At Seateddimevarieties.com, Gerry Fortin writes that these coins "are almost always encountered with surface problems" and that they are "under strong collector demand with problem free examples bringing in excess of trend sheet prices."
