Description:
Delightful 1848 Proof Dime, PR66
1848 10C PR66 NGC. Ex: Pittman-Kaufman. The Phil Kaufman 1848 proof dime comes out of the John Jay Pittman collection, and ranks among the finest known. Walter Breen (1989) enumerates eight examples, while David Akers estimates that eight to 10 specimens exist, including the two impounded in the American Numismatic Society and Smithsonian Institution collections. These figures are more or less in line with the 12 coins seen by NGC and PCGS, especially when a likely number of resubmissions are taken into account.
Our research, based on plated catalogs available to us, identifies five different 1848 proof dimes, plus the ANS and Smithsonian specimens. It is possible one or two other examples exist.

1. PR66 NGC. The Kaufman coin.
World's Greatest Collection (Numismatic Gallery (5/1945, lot 534; Friedman Collection; 1946 ANA (Numismatic Gallery, 8/1946), lot 270; John Jay Pittman Collection (David Akers, 10/1997), lot 601.

2. PR66 NGC.
Dr. Richard Ariagno Collection (Ira and Larry Goldberg, 6/1999), lot 237; Ira and Larry Goldberg (6/2002), lot 2149.

3. PR66 NGC.
The Richmond Sale, part III (David Lawrence Rare Coins, 3/2005), lot 1242; Bowers and Merena (12/2005), lot 1458.

4. PR65 NGC.

Lester Merkin (4/1966), lot 144.

B. Brilliant Proof.
Winner F. Delp Collection (Stack's 11/1972), lot 45.

C. PR66 NGC.
Superior Galleries (2/2008), lot 503.

Magnificent toning adorns both sides of the Kaufman Premium Gem proof, with light orange-gold dominating the obverse, accented with splashes of sky-blue. Orange-gold and violet occupy the central reverse, flanked by iridescent greenish-gold. The design elements are crisply struck, with complete separation of Liberty's foot and sandal, and full ribbing on the reverse wreath. Deep mirror fields highlight the motifs on both sides, each of which reveals immaculate preservation. This lovely specimen will delight the most discriminating collector.
From The Phil Kaufman Collection of Early Proof Sets, Part Four. (PCGS# 84735)
