1842 10C PR65 Cameo NGC....
Gem Proof Cameo 1842 Seated Dime1842 10C PR65 Cameo NGC. The PR65 Cameo 1842 Seated dime formerly in the Phil Kaufman Collection is the only example certified by either leading grading service with a Cameo designation, and it is tied with two other non-Cameo examples for highest numerical grade (8/12). This coin also traces its history to both the famous Norweb and Lovejoy collections. PCGS estimates only five to seven specimens survive in all grades.
Deeply mirrored fields establish distinctive contrast with the satiny motifs, confirming the Cameo designation. The design features are sharply detailed throughout. None of the relief features present even a hint of localized weakness. The fully brilliant surfaces are well cared for, revealing no more than a few unobtrusive ticks completely within the parameters of the grade. A charming example for the aficionado of Seated Liberty proofs.
