Lot Description
1874-CC 10C Arrows VF25 PCGS. The shift in weight for the minor silver coins that took place in 1873 had the most immediate impact at Carson City. The No Arrows dimes for that year were melted save for a single piece, and like the CC-mint issues of 1871 and 1872, the 1873-CC Arrows is a challenging and sought-after variety. Those three issues, however, seem available when compared to the 1874-CC, the most elusive Seated dime represented in multiple collections. This slate-gray and cloud-gray representative shows distinct evidence of wear, an unsurprising consequence of the dearth of small change in Nevada at the time. Subtle blue accents visit the fields as well. Though a mark appears to the left of Liberty's head and an abrasion is present on the middle left part of the wreath, the coin displays beautifully for the grade assigned and shows few flaws otherwise. A notable and eminently collectible representative of this highly elusive issue. Population: 3 in 25, 9 finer (12/07).
