Gem Proof 1837 No Stars Dime1837 10C No Stars PR65 PCGS. Large Date. A key proof subtype, since the No Stars Liberty Seated design was only struck in proof during 1837. In his 1988 Encyclopedia, Breen states "some 30 brilliant proofs [were] struck for presentation to Treasury officials and other VIPs" on June 30, 1837. Those proofs can be identified by a die line from a denticle above the left half of the first T in STATES, and also by recutting on the base of the 7 in the date. Mark Borckardt adds that all proofs he has seen have an identical die rotation of 200 degrees, slightly clockwise from coin turn.
This lovely Gem has dusky powder-blue, yellow-green, and plum-mauve toning. The strike is penetrating, even on Liberty's hair and the dentils. Careful rotation under a light fails to locate grade-limiting imperfections. Population: 2 in 65, 1 finer (8/07). (NGC ID# 23BN, PCGS# 4718)
