Lot Description
1874-CC 10C Arrows Fine 12 NGC. Discounting the uncollectible 1873-CC No Arrows issue, the 1874-CC Arrows Seated Liberty dime is the uncontested key to the series. According to Mint records, only 10,817 pieces were struck, all from the same dies. The issue is scarce-to-rare in any grade, and many examples are seen with surface problems. The arrows at the date, a short-lived two-year design feature, were indicative of a weight change instituted the previous year. The present coin is an evenly worn Fine 12 specimen that retains all major design elements in outline and a significant amount of interior detail. The light gray surfaces are problem-free, with no large abrasions or rim bruises. Census: 2 in 12, 7 finer (4/12).
