Description:
Premium Gem Proof 1843 Seated Dime
Extremely Rare Cameo Example
1843 10C PR66 Cameo NGC. This extraordinary dime is one of perhaps nine or so survivors from an undetermined, but undoubtedly limited proof production. It is the single finest Cameo coin certified by the leading grading services (8/12).
Many of the great collections of the past, including Eliasberg, Lovejoy, Starr, and (James) Stack, lacked this extremely rare proof. The Norweb Collection contained one example, and one was included in Amon Carter's 1843 proof set. The John Jay Pittman Collection had two 1843 proof dimes, one part of his 1843 proof set.
This captivating Premium Gem Cameo proof, with its deep mirrored fields and frosty motifs, jumps out at the observer. The strike is bold throughout, including complete separation of Liberty's foot and sandal, full detail on the star radials, and complete leaf-ribbing. A truly wonderful coin with impeccably preserved, untoned surfaces. The obverse has a small die chip on the rim at 9 o'clock, diagnostic on all proof examples of this issue.
Ex: Baltimore Signature (Heritage, 7/2008), lot 1807.
