Description:
Sharp 1837 Large Date, No Stars Dime, PR64
1837 10C Large Date, No Stars PR64 PCGS. Greer-102. The first examples of Christian Gobrecht's Seated Liberty design to be coined en masse were the dimes and half dimes of 1837. The design represented a significant technological breakthrough, since the uncluttered obverse featured only the portrait of Liberty and the date--and thus the hubbed die could be completed by applying a single blow of the date logotype.
According to Breen's Complete Encyclopedia (1988), the Mint struck 30 brilliant proof dimes on June 30, 1837 for presentation to Treasury officials and other VIPs in celebration of the new advances. The proofs were struck with the Large Date logotype and are distinguishable by the spur above the first T in STATES.
In keeping with their distribution to noncollectors, many of the surviving proof examples are nicked-up or, worse yet, today even unrecognizable as proofs. Although more than 40 examples are certified between NGC and PCGS, as many as half are duplicates. This piece is sharply struck and deeply toned in slate-gray that extends to charcoal in some peripheral areas. The fields, although unreflective, are relatively smooth and particularly attractive for the grade. The 7 in the date is repunched, indicative of the Greer-102 variety. Population: 6 in 64, 3 finer (4/09).
