Description:
Finest Certified 1884 10 Cents
Victoria 1884 10 Cents, From our January 2010 Auction of the Canadiana Collection, where it was described, "KM3, MS65 PCGS. After a hiatus of 13 years, the Royal Mint once again struck 10 Cents pieces for Canada. The Royal Mint Report states 152,428 coins were produced from two obverse and two reverse die pairs, with a net mintage of 150,000 pieces. The Norweb catalog terms the date punch as "idiosyncratic," and indeed it is. Each digit appears to have been hand-punched into the die, and the numerals slant noticeably upward from left to right. Of the 51 pieces certified by PCGS of this issue, 43 are in circulated grades. The Norweb, Pittman, and Burhop coins were all in the VF-XF grade range. This is the single finest example certified by PCGS (7/09). The mint luster is bright and sparkles through the toning that covers each side. The surfaces are predominantly gray, with considerable amounts of blue interspersed over the reverse, while golden-lilac encircles the obverse rim. Very few marks are present, the only one worthy of mention is a diagonal abrasion just right of the N in CENTS. A remarkable opportunity to acquire this key Canadian rarity." This exceptional piece remains the single finest example certified by PCGS.
