1837 10C NO STARS
Exceedingly Rare 1837 No Stars Seated Dime, PR65 NGC1837 10C No Stars PR65 NGC. Greer-102. All proofs of this first-year issue are of the Large Date variety. The diagnostic die scratch on the reverse from the rim above the first T in STATES is visible on this coin under a loupe, as well as a faint die scratch through the ES and O in STATES OF. The later feature is also diagnostic of this issue. Writing in 1977, Breen states that perhaps 20 examples of this rare first-year proof are extant, some of which are impaired. In his 1988 Encyclopedia, however, the author states that "30+" proof 1837 No Stars Dimes are extant. Regardless of which, if either, of these estimates is accurate, there is no doubt that this proof issue is one of the premier rarities in the Seated Dime series.
An unquestionably important coin for first-year proof type purposes, this is a fully original Gem with deep, rich, charcoal-gray toning and vibrant, rainbow colored undertones. The fields shimmer as the coin rotates beneath a light, the devices are extraordinarily well struck. The quintessential representative of Christian Gobrecht's original conception of the Seated Liberty Dime.
From the Gulf Coast Collection. (NGC ID# 23BN, PCGS# 4718)
