Lot Description
1874-CC 10C Arrows XF45 NGC. The 1874-CC is the key to the Seated dime series, excluding the non-collectible 1873-CC No Arrows. Only 10,817 pieces were struck, and it seems like a higher percentage than usual of the surviving examples show some sort of post-striking problem(s). Our records indicate that a mere three Choice XF specimens, and 11 coins grading higher, have made appearances at major auctions over the last 20 years. Likewise, only four XF45 coins have been certified by NGC and PCGS combined, and seven pieces finer (9/05). The present piece displays slight circulation, and the design elements have retained nice detail. The magenta-gray surfaces display orange, cobalt-blue, and lilac accents, especially on the obverse. The surfaces on both sides are remarkably clean. All in all, this piece exudes considerable eye appeal. Population: 1 in 45, 4 finer (9/05).
